ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has signed the Legislature’s operating budget into law.

The governor’s office announced the signing Monday night. The House and Senate approved a bill to restore the $130 million in funding last week.

Dayton last year vetoed the same amount in legislative funding. The move triggered months of court cases and forced the Legislature to go into the 2018 session using emergency funds. The Democratic governor wanted to rework costly tax breaks and other measures last year, but eventually relented.

In a statement Monday, Dayton says he’s “glad to put this matter behind us, so that we may turn our attention to the issues important to Minnesotans.”

    After having a tantrum and sniveling about his wants, the idiotic Governor, dug into his box of crayons and signed the bill. Wow, big news story that is.
