New laws provide look back at the 2014 session

Flowers Now available on the web is New Laws 2014, overviews of the 169 bills acted on by the governor during the recently completed legislative session.

Compiled by the nonpartisan House Public Information Services staff, with help from the nonpartisan House Research and House Fiscal Analysis departments, the overviews are written in an easy-to-understand style, and include links to the House or Senate version of the bill signed into law or vetoed.

The site also includes a selection of bills that did not make it into law.

New Laws 2014 can be accessed here, or by logging on to the House of Representatives website at www.house.mn and clicking on New Laws under the House News and Publications category located in the center of the main page.

Looking to the 2015 session

Operating on a biennium, and according to Minnesota Statute 3.011, the Legislature convenes on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of each odd-numbered year. So the start date for the 2015 session is Jan. 6, 2015. In the even numbered years, it convenes on a date set by joint agreement of both bodies. The state constitution limits the Legislature to meeting 120 legislative days during each biennium.
