Dayton To Visit Moose Lake, Other Flooded Cities

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton says he plans to visit Moose Lake, Carlton and other flooded cities in northeastern Minnesota next week as state leaders look toward providing flood relief.

Dayton said Friday that he offered to visit on Saturday but local officials told him to hold off as they focus on cleaning up and dealing with the aftermath. He visited flood-damaged parts of Duluth on Thursday.

Dayton says it will take time to measure the damage and work out the federal and state response. He says, “We’re all going to pitch in together.”

Dayton says it’s too early to say whether a special legislative session is needed to approve disaster relief, but he says House Speaker Kurt Zellers and Senate Majority David Senjem have offered their full support.
