Gov. Mark Dayton will sit down with Democratic and Republican leaders from the Minnesota House and Senate on Friday to discuss agenda items for a special session.
The group is trying to work out ground rules for a September session to approve storm disaster relief following the June storms.
The storm system began by dropping 5.6 inches of rain in Stevens County on June 20 and ended with an 8.25-inch rainfall in Wilkin County on June 26. Portions of the state saw record amounts of rain falling at a rate of one to two inches per hour, causing flash flooding and mudslides in many places.
In the metro, thousands of trees were uprooted and fell on public buildings and roads. An estimated 600,000 buildings were left without electricity, marking the largest power outage in Minnesota history.
Most of them agree legislators should approve $4.5 million in aid for 18 counties hit by the severe weather, but the two sides don't agree on getting rid of two tax hikes passed by lawmakers earlier this year.
Last month, President Obama declared a major disaster for the 18 counties, meaning FEMA will reimburse 75 percent of damage costs.
