ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Gov. Tim Walz has formally called a special legislative session to convene Monday,. He's urging lawmakers to pass the police accountability and public works bills that they were unable to agree on last month. Walz continues to support the sweeping policing measures proposed by Democrats following the death of George Floyd.

The slate passed the House in last month’s special session but met with resistance in the Republican-controlled Senate, which supported some but not all of those proposals.

Lawmakers were also unable to finish work last month on a $1.35 billion public works borrowing package known as a bonding bill.
