At Issue: May 29 — Legislative session adjourns sine die, special session possible
The Minnesota legislative session adjourned without scheduling any future meeting dates, and also without passing a tax bill or spending bills, meaning it is still unclear if a special session will happen. Gov. Tim Walz, who officially filed for re-election with Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan, said he remained optimistic at the end of the session.
Jim Schultz, the Republican-endorsed candidate for Minnesota attorney general, joined “At Issue” for a one-on-one discussion. Schultz said his greatest calling to run for the position was the public safety issues the state has faced over the past few years.
Our political analysts also joined the show to discuss legislative bills and the potential for a special session. After the recent mass shooting in Uvalde, Texas, analysts say it’s likely Democrats will bring up the issue of gun control if a special session were to be called.
Meanwhile in Minneapolis, painting has started on a mural honoring pop legend Prince.
