Minnesota government shutdown will end today

ST. PAUL, Minn. — State government will resume operation today.

Minnesota lawmakers approved a budget deal early Wednesday that will end a 20-day state government shutdown as soon as Gov. Mark Dayton signs it.

The state House and Senate approved the budget during a special session, with the last vote coming around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. The session began Tuesday afternoon and adjourned a few minutes after the last budget bills passed.

Dayton was expected to sign the bills later Wednesday morning.
