Dayton asks to delay State of State speech

April 9, 2014

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Gov. Mark Dayton is asking for more time to prepare his State of the State speech before a joint session of the Minnesota Legislature.

Dayton sent letters to the House and Senate Wednesday, requesting a joint session on April 30.

The governor originally wanted to speak on April 23, which is soon after lawmakers return from a spring recess.

But a spokesman says Dayton would simply like more time to prepare his remarks.

Minnesota governors usually give the road-map speech early in session. But Dayton had hip surgery and a lengthy recovery that kept him away from the Capitol in the opening weeks.
