ST.PAUL, Minn (KFGO AM) -- State lawmakers will convene on September 9th for a special session to approve disaster aid to 18 Minnesota counties affected by severe june storms.

President Obama signed a disaster relief declaration in july, with federal funds covering 75-percent of road, bridge and public infrastructure costs, the state is responsible for the other 25 percent.

The bill's chief author, democratic Austin Representative Jeanne Poppe says roughly four-and-a-half million dollars will go toward aid for the counties.

Per an agreement among legislative leaders, no other bills or amendments are to be allowed as part of the session.
