Speaker Kurt Daudt on a possible special session

There's still no news of a special session for Minnesota lawmakers.

In May the Legislature ran out of time to finish a transportation funding package and a borrowing bill for construction projects. While lawmakers did pass a tax bill, DFL Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed it over a language error that could have had expensive consequences.

The Governor has been promoting the need for a special session, but says he won't call one until lawmakers agree to his demands.

Marianne Combs talked with Republican Speaker of the House Kurt Daudt about a possible special session -- and his priorities if there is one.
