Minnesota House DFL Majority announces committee structure and chairs

Monday, November 30, 2020

St. Paul, Minnesota — Today, the Minnesota House DFL announced the committee structure and chair assignments for the 2021-2022 biennium. This biennium’s committee chairs represent the most diverse group in history.

“Minnesota is facing significant challenges, and our committee chairs are ready to lead,” said House Speaker Melissa Hortman. “Our committee chairs, like our caucus, reflect the diversity of our state's population and our geography.

Democrats are focused on what Minnesotans value: recovering and rebuilding from COVID, affordable health care, excellent educational opportunities from preschool through job training, and economic security for our families. We are ready to get to work building a Minnesota that works better for everyone.”
