Minnesota shutdown to end soon

St. Paul, Minn., (CNNMoney) - Democratic governor Mark Dayton and leaders of the Republican-controlled legislature have reach a deal that will close the Minnesota's budget gap end the state's government shutdown "within days."

"It is my understanding that we have reached an agreement," Dayton said, as the visibly tired legislators emerged from a three hour meeting at the Capitol to speak to press.
