Jimmy Carter Not Needed To Reach MN Budget Compromise


After a long day of negotiations with the Governor’s office, House and Senate members agreed to a compromise to cut Minnesota’s budget. At an unusual Saturday meeting of the House-Senate Budget Conference Committee, Senator Richard Cohen outlines the basic agreement. Senator Cohen also notes that the budget dispute between Representative Phyllis Kahn and Senator Don Betzhold had been resolved and then jokes that former President Jimmy Carter was ready to come in and negotiate an agreement in case he was needed in hopes of winning another Nobel Peace Prize.
