The long days (and nights) of session have arrived in the House, accompanied by several off-site meetings over the next few days.

In addition to Friday’s transportation division meeting in St. Cloud, and another Tuesday night at North High School in Minneapolis, the education finance division has a meeting this afternoon in Windom, while the public safety division is planning a Wednesday evening meeting with the time and location still pending.

At least one House committee, subcommittee or division evening meeting is scheduled next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

But before we look ahead, however, let’s look back at what you may have missed this week.
