CHICAGO — After working through the night to resolve differences, the Minnesota Legislature yesterday approved a budget agreement that cuts spending, including aid to local governments, and pushes off $1.8 billion owed to schools into the next budget cycle to address a $3 billion shortfall.

The plan was approved by the House 97 to 32 and by the Senate 52 to 14 during a special session. Both chambers are controlled by the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party.
