The special session of the Minnesota state legislature adjourned Saturday morning without passing any significant legislation. State Senator Nick Frentz of North Mankato says that was the wrong move to leave St. Paul.
“I voted no to adjourn,” said Frentz. “In a speech, I gave at six a.m., I said if you tell a carpenter here’s the job and he doesn’t finish it, he doesn’t get paid and may get fired. Minnesotans sent us there to do a job and our work was left undone.”
Governor Walz wanted action on bonding and police reform but the house and senate failed to reach an agreement.
