It looks like the Minnesota Legislature could pass the first batch of budget bills as soon as Thursday, but MNN’s Bill Werner reports a number of major bills are still unresolved:

The higher education, agriculture, commerce/energy and legacy bills are all tentatively scheduled for floor votes in the House on Thursday, but House and Senate negotiators continue wrangling with an E-12 education budget bill, health and human services, and a number of others — including public safety, where the holdup is police reform.  The tax cut bill is ready for a vote, but House leaders say they’ll hold it back until closer to the end of the special session for negotiating leverage.
