ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The late flurry of bills the Minnesota Legislature passed in the session's final hours now sit on Gov. Mark Dayton's desk.
The final batch was formally delivered Wednesday. That step starts a window for him to sign or veto bills. One budget bill, an economic development finance package, reached his desk Tuesday.
Governors have three full days to consider bills. The full budget and everything else must be decided on by Saturday night at the latest.
Because Dayton and the legislative majorities are both Democratic, the presumption is the budget will be signed. But there is a chance Dayton could eliminate some spending provisions with his line-item veto authority.
Dayton declined to say Wednesday if he would scuttle parts of an environmental finance bill, as some outdoors groups want.
