2016 committee deadlines announced

The first 2016 committee deadline will be April 1.

The Legislature is scheduled to reconvene at noon on March 8. Legislators will have just over three weeks before the first committee deadline.

According to a memo from House Speaker Kurt Daudt (R-Crown) and Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk (DFL-Cook), three committee deadlines for the 2016 session have been established:

  • April 1, committees must act favorably on bills in the house of origin;
  • April 8, committees must act favorably on bills, or companion bills, that met the first deadline in the other house; and
  • April 21, the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee must act favorably on major appropriation and finance bills.

By law, legislators must adjourn this session by May 23.
