The Minnesota Star Tribune is reporting Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican lawmakers met today to try to reach a deal to temporarily fund the government beyond midnight tonight.

The talks broke off after about an hour and fifteen minutes. No deal, the paper reported.

With 12 hours left until the all but the most critical state services cease operating, there are few indications the two parties are moving any closer to reaching an agreement.

No further talks are currently scheduled.
