News Release

New from Rep. Anna Wills 2-26-2016

Dear Friends,

I’d like to start right off by giving you some information that you may find interesting once session begins.

Helpful Resources to Follow the Legislative Process

With session beginning on March 8th, I thought I would list a few items that will make following the legislative process easier.

The nonpartisan House Public Information Services, put out a video entitled "The Legislature: Its People and the Process." This six-minute film provides some succinct information regarding how Minnesota's legislature operates, including the process of committees, floor sessions, and how bills move through the legislature. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/oe_DnIRf-PI
