Seems the republicans are holding the bill hostage so they can get more:
A) Concessions from Gov. Dayton concerning a small business bill and over all budget cuts over a bonding bill
B) Trying to get themselves move attention by killing the bill which several senators seem to be quite proud of being part of. Sen. Scott Nienow, R-Cambridge being one of the main culprits.
As stated above, they seem to have the votes from both republican and democrats to get it done. The question will be, will it ever be allowed to get voted on. Right now it's not looking good but Dayton is trying to remain positive. Minnpost article
