Speaker of House says lawmakers will not be able to work out bills by tonight's deadline
ST. PAUL -- Forget about the deadlines.
That was the message Wednesday night from House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, DFL-Minneapolis.
Legislators earlier this year set today as the deadline for House and Senate ne-gotiators to work out differences in bills the two chambers passed to finance state programs.
That will not happen tonight, Kelliher admitted to a House-Senate commission.
