Former Vice President Walter Mondale pauses while discussing the issues the state is facing during a news conference on Tuesday, July 5, 2011 in Minneapolis. Mondale and former Gov. Arne Carlson announced an independent commission designed to resolve Minnesota's budget deadlock. Carlson and Mondale won't serve on the panel. They say it will be co-chaired by Republican former state Sen. Stephen Dille and Democratic former state Rep. Wayne Simoneau. The commission will also include Gov. Mark Dayton's budget commissioner, Jim Schowalter. (AP Photo/The Star Tribune, Leah Millis) less
