DULUTH, Min. (KDAL) - Since the regular legislative session ended on May 23rd, the leaders of the Republican majority, the Democratic minority and Governor Dayton have all made the rounds in Minnesota to blame the other side for a potential government shutdown at the end of June.  At the Duluth Airport on Thursday, Dayton says the Republican budget packages that he vetoed this week would have hit Duluth and the Twin Cities especially hard.  The governor said his proposal calls for an even balance between budget cuts and a tax increase on only the richest two percent of Minnesotans.  Dayton says it takes two to compromise and he continues to wait in the middle for the Republicans to meet him there.
