ST. PAUL (AP) — Minnesota legislative leaders say they'll call a special session to finish the state budget after they miss Monday's midnight deadline to finalize a new spending package.

The Legislature scrambled over the weekend to finish a new two-year spending plan but ran out of time. Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and top Republicans struggled to find agreements on major pieces of the budget.

The two sides announced late Monday they'd agreed on a tentative plan to call a special session immediately after Monday's midnight deadline. They plan to finish passing the remaining pieces of the budget by Wednesday morning.

It calls for $660 million in tax relief, $50 million to expand preschool offerings and $300 million to fix roads and bridges. House Speaker Kurt Daudt says he's optimistic the deal will come together in a spillover session.
