Friday, 01 Jul 2011 06:14 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders say they don't plan talks over the Fourth of July weekend on a budget impasse that has shut down the Minnesota government.

Dayton said Friday he thinks lawmakers should spend the weekend in their legislative districts, hearing from their constituents. He says he'll probably contact GOP leaders on Tuesday.

House Speaker Kurt Zellers and Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch (KOHK) say they have no plans to meet with the governor, but are available any time.

Budget talks broke down late Thursday and a shutdown started at midnight Friday.
