In Willmar, DFL'ers say counterparts have 'feet stuck in concrete'


Republican leaders' unwillingness to make a common sense compromise on the state budget could result in the partial shutdown of state government, according to a group of DFL House members who criticized the Republican bu-dget plan Wednesday in Willmar during a series of statewide press conferences.

"They've got their feet stuck in concrete," said Rep. Tim Mahoney, DFL-St. Paul, calling the Rep-ublican-backed bill an "all cuts budget."

The bill was vetoed by Gov. Mark Dayton.
