At the Minnesota Legislature, Conference Committees Underway
Minnesota lawmakers met their self-imposed May 1 deadline for passing major budget bills in both bodies. Having worked late into the evening all week, some conference committees are already meeting in order to reconcile the considerable differences in those bills. Governor Walz, along with House and Senate leadership, have begun negotiations about the fiscal targets for those bills, and will continue to meet throughout the weekend. Monday, May 6 is the proposed deadline for those joint numbers to be released.
