Video Replay: Gov. Dayton Undecided On Signing Bills Or Calling Special Session

Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton comments on the chaotic end of the legislative session. He has yet to sign several of the major bills that were passed in the last hours of the session including a bill that contains about 35 million dollars in tax breaks for tobacco companies, a spending bill that does not require licensed teachers for state-funded pre-k education, and a body cam bill that is very favorable to police,

The legislature failed to pass a bonding bill and a transportation bill. The governor says he is not sure if he will call a special session to consider those items.
