Retired state Rep. Terry Morrow can give his home county cash to defray the cost of the special election to replace him, the state's campaign finance agency decided.

The agency decided giving money to the county was a permissible use of his left over campaign cash.

According to campaign finance records, Morrow had just under $11,000 left in his campaign account at the end of last year. The Mankato Free Press reported last month that the special election to replace Morrow could cost many multiples of that.

Last year, after he was re-elected, Morrow announced he would resign from the Legislature to take a job helping to draft uniform legislation in Chicago.
