SAINT PAUL – Today at noon, the Minnesota Legislature convened in special session. The agenda will include solutions to address the COVID-19 pandemic, police accountability reforms, a Jobs and Local Projects package, and more.
Rep. Tina Liebling (DFL – Rochester) issued the following statement:
“This special session is an opportunity to finish important work for the people of Minnesota. After George Floyd’s killing, Minnesotans are still demanding improvements to public safety so everyone, in every community, can have confidence in law enforcement. We will continue working to enact strong police accountability measures like the ones the House approved in the last special session.
“The COVID-19 pandemic also continues to present unpredictable challenges. We must continue working to protect Minnesotans from the virus, slow the spread, and reduce the economic and other impacts. To that end, I am working on critical support for disability services. I am also optimistic that we can reach agreement on a strong capital investment package that invests in important infrastructure projects and creates good-paying jobs. Minnesotans are counting on us and I’m committed to building a state that works better for everybody.”
