Here is some information regarding broadcasts and Webcasts of legislative television coverage live from Capitol. I recommend visiting the links below to stay in the loop as things transpire in St. Paul.
We are busy working on bills to create jobs, boost the private-sector workforce and fix our budget problems. I'll pass along details on those matters soon.
Television programming is provided during legislative sessions Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended evening and weekend coverage available of high-profile issues. This coverage is broadcast statewide on the MN Channel (also called tptMN), which is carried by the six public television stations around the state. All programming broadcast on the MN Channel is closed-captioned.
• For viewers using over-the-air antennas, legislative television coverage is available on the MN Channel, which is broadcast by your local public television station.
• For cable subscribers, legislative television coverage is available if your local cable system carries the MN Channel. Check your local listings, contact your cable provider or call your local public television station to find the MN Channel on your cable system.
