The Minnesota Supreme Court is expected to deliver its long-awaited decision Thursday in a court case between the governor and Legislature.
A notice from the clerk of courts to parties in the case said a decision has been made in the lawsuit regarding Gov. Mark Dayton's vetoes. Dayton struck down funding for the House and Senate in a broader dispute over the state budget.
If high court invalidates the line-item vetoes, it would cause funding to spring back. If justices uphold the vetoes, it will push the Legislature toward a financial crisis.
Senate leaders say they will run out of money in coming weeks and were working to line up a temporary funding stream to keep staff employed into January.
Next year's session won't convene until mid-February.
