Minnesota Legislature

Week in preview: multi-hour — maybe multi-day — omnibus debates expected to continue

About the only thing certain at the Minnesota House of Representatives in the next week or so is that members will not be meeting Friday evening or Saturday.

Inordinate amounts of caffeine and maybe not always eating the healthiest of food? Probably.

According to supplemental guidelines established by legislative leaders and Gov. Tim Walz earlier this year, all major finance bills are to be passed off the House and Senate floors, and conference committees appointed, by May 1. Conferees are to finish their work by May 13, one week before the legislative session must constitutionally conclude.
