TUESDAY: State Government Committee to hear testimony on House, Senate budgets
SAINT PAUL, Minn. — State Government House/Senate Conference Committee Co-Chair Michael Nelson will hold a public hearing on Tuesday at 3 p.m. Nearly all Minnesota commissioners and statewide officeholders, with the exception of the Governor, are expected to provide testimony.
WHAT: Meeting of the House/Senate Conference Committee on the State Government budget, HF 1935
WHO: Rep. Michael Nelson (DFL – Brooklyn Park), committee members, testifiers
WHERE: Room G-23, Capitol

The House budget appropriates the full $6.6 million allocated by the Federal Government to improve Minnesota's election security, accessibility, cybersecurity, and to modernize the statewide voter registration system. The Senate does not allocate any of the Federal money, leaving it on the table. Minnesota has four years to allocate and use the funds, a portion of which would be used on projects that could take four years to complete.
