The finger-pointing continues at the State Capitol as lawmakers try to wrap up a special session. At a press conference led by DFL leadership, Governor Tim Walz was critical of Republicans–particularly with regard to police accountability bills passed by the Minnesota Senate.

“Weak sauce legislation to get out of town and pretend like you made change ends now.”

Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka says any implication that the Senate is doing nothing is false, and to hear accusations from the governor and Democrats…

“It shocked me that the House hasn’t even passed criminal justice reform and we passed five police accountability bills earlier this week, five of them!”

Gazelka reiterated that the special session would end Friday night, though he said lawmakers would come back to finish unresolved business if the governor calls them back.
