MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — There are no budget talks this weekend and a date for a special session has still not been set.

If state lawmakers can’t reach a budget deal by July 1, there will be a partial government shutdown. State employees need one month’s notice when they are going to be laid off, so layoff notices will be going out starting Monday.

Gov. Mark Dayton has stopped pushing for a statewide pre-K program, but he still wants more money in the budget for education.
