House leadership encourages public to watch session remotely

Wednesday, March 25, 2020


St. Paul, Minnesota — Minnesota House leaders are encouraging members of the public to watch Thursday’s legislative session remotely instead of coming to the State Capitol. 

“We have to take steps to keep legislators, staff, and the public safe,” said House Speaker Melissa Hortman. “We will continue to follow guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health when we convene and as a result, we strongly encourage members of the public to watch the floor session from off-site.”

“The Minnesota House of Representatives is continuing to re-engineer how we work in the face of a global pandemic and that requires efforts by all of us to keep everyone safe,” added Majority Leader Winkler. “The public can continue reaching out to us in a variety of ways that do not involve coming to the Capitol. We continue to urge everyone to stay home if at all possible.”

Members of the public can watch the House floor session on the House website, YouTube, and on TPT Minnesota. Video from all floor sessions is archived here.
