Peter Callaghan from MinnPost

Last week we talked with MN Speaker of the House Melissa Hortman - Brooklyn Park (DFL) about what she thinks got accomplished this session - and what is LEFT to accomplish including holding pharmaceutical companies accountable as well as insulin prices.

Today on Making Sausage we talked with DFL commentator Colleen Nardone and Grand Village Executive Director Kyle Hedlund.  Colleen has a long history with how the legislative process works and talked about what budget targets the DFL was happy for, and what may have been better.  The session ended Monday night, but lots more work to be done in conference committee and a special session.

We're getting down to the wire at the MN Legislature.  Minnesota is the only state in the union that has a divided government right now with a DFL governor, DFL majority House and a Republican majority Senate.  Before the legislative session began there was high hopes on "working across the aisle" and compromise. 

Governor Walz was back with us on Making Sausage on the Thursday Morning Show on KAXE/KBXE.
