Real ID Bill Passes Minn. House and Senate, Heads to Gov. Dayton

Real ID Bill Passes Minn. House and Senate, Heads to Gov. Daytonā€¯

Due to squabbling over transportation spending in St. Paul, the governor says the only way to get the job done is force residents to pay more when buying a vehicle.

Minnesota residents don't need to worry about trouble boarding flights next year: Gov. Mark Dayton has signed a bill complying with Real ID into law. "If you get into the policy matters, we are talking about hours and hours and hours of discussion and debate, ' Dayton said this week".

Dayton and many lawmakers said they were concerned that the Legislature can not finish by its constitutionally mandated midnight Monday deadline.

Simple steps to tiptoe around WannaCry ransomware nightmare
How does WannaCry work and what can we do to protect ourselves? "Looking at the trends, it was going to happen", he said. The ransomware exploits a vulnerability in Microsoft Windows that was purportedly identified by the U.S.

Deep differences over taxes and spending and the sheer logistics of passing budget bills are threatening to send the legislative session into overtime. Republicans would get roughly $700 million to spend on their top goals - new transportation funding and tax cuts - while the governor would get the rest to spend on things like state programs, health and human services and new education funding. Talks between the governor and Republicans quickly went sour, creating an impasse between the two parties that's shown only little movement since then.

Behind the bluster are two drastically different visions for the state's next budget. Daudt balked at the idea but said he would hear out Gazelka.

Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, said Thursday night that he wanted to give Dayton a new budget offer in an attempt to move talks ahead.

Khoshcheshm said that Rouhani was expected to have "a hard job" in the upcoming election. He lost to Rouhani during the presidential election of 2013.

The GOP-controlled Legislature has passed 10 budget bills, which Democrat Dayton vetoed. "If we're going to consider a halfway budget we've got to consider all the spending", Knoblach said.

If they can't strike a deal in time, the state wouldn't immediately plunge into a state government shutdown.

That plan still led to a messy, one-day special session that almost derailed over disagreements on environmental spending. Late Friday morning, House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, said they had placed a "cone of silence" on their discussions.
