With only 4 weeks to go this session we have a lot of work before us. Most policy committees are hearing many bills and conference committees continue to meet in order to consolidate the House and Senate budget bills.
Emily's Law passed the Public Safety Committee this week and will be heard next week in the Judiciary Committee.
The Higher Ed Conference Committee will be meeting next Tuesday. All conference committees are working to finish their bills with only the Ag Bill signed by the Governor so far. As we continue to work out the differences between the House and Senate bills we hope to have a finalized bill soon to present to the Governor for his signature.
The 6th Grade Students from Battle Lake and Underwood visited the Capitol this week. It was great to have them here. Guided tours are conducted by the Historical Society every day and available to everyone. Calling ahead (651) 296-2881 will ensure a specific time for the tour.
As always if you have any questions or need help with anything, please don’t hesitate to contact my office.
Visitors continue to come to the capitol to take tours and visit with local legislators. I would encourage folks to come to the Capitol for a visit. Please contact my assistant Chelsea Thompson to schedule a tour and visit by emailing her at email@example.com or you can reach her by phone at 651-296-4946 or 800-336-8017.
