Open Forum: Minnesotans deserve better
The governor and Legislature now need a special session to pass a budget.
We taxpayers will pay thousands extra for each day of that session: up to
$16,080/day in per diem ($86/day for Senators; $77/day for House members); weekly round trip mileage at $.51 for legislators living over 50 miles away; possibly extra staff costs.
