ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — After an extended wait, two of Gov. Mark Dayton's cabinet members are officially in place.

The Minnesota Senate Thursday confirmed Jim Schowalter as the commissioner of the state's budget department, and Larry Pogemiller as director of the Office of Higher Education.

The previous Republican-controlled Senate didn't take up confirmation of Dayton's appointees.
