  • 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.
