ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota legislators have no floor sessions scheduled Wednesday, leaving the field clear for high-level talks between Gov. Mark Dayton and leaders on the key issues standing in the way of a session finish.

The GOP-controlled House approved a tax bill Tuesday that would give property tax relief to businesses. It’s one of their top priorities, but Dayton’s opposed to the bill because it would tap budget reserves to pay for the relief.

Meanwhile, the struggle over a Vikings stadium plan took a detour when Republican leaders came forward Tuesday with a stadium plan that would drop the roof and fund it with general-fund dollars instead of expanded gambling.

Dayton, the Vikings and other supporters of the main bill say it’s a non-starter.
