At The Table – State: January 28, 2021

Opening Weeks of Session  While 2021 began rather eventfully, there was some semblance of tradition and normalcy during the start of this new legislative term. New members were sworn in (albeit virtually), committees began meeting, and bills were introduced. January has been mostly an orientation month: opportunities for legislators to hear overview presentations from various departments across the state with little official business.   COVID-19 has […]

At The Table – 2021 Legislative Preview

2021 is not as fresh a start as most new years. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to permeate every aspect of life, but the legislative process must continue, and the Minnesota Legislature has taken measures to adjust. Voting, hearings, and general business will be conducted virtually, for the most part. While the House has gone fully virtual, the Senate has chosen a hybrid model with operational details […]

At the Table – 7th Special Session  During the Minnesota legislature’s historic and final seventh special session of 2020, Governor Walz’s emergency powers were extended and a COVID-19 relief bill was passed. The bill was met with strong opposition from Republicans in both the House and Senate, protesting the lack of transparency in the process.  Yesterday marked the last time either legislative body will meet […]

Minnesota’s Sixth Special Session  Minnesota lawmakers returned for their historic sixth special session yesterday, Thursday, November 12, which marks the most special sessions called in a calendar year. During session, the legislature voted to extend the peacetime emergency classification, allowing Governor Walz to maintain his emergency powers — the longest extension in Minnesota history — to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. Lastly, but most surprisingly, David Tomassoni, a DFL Senator representing the Iron Range, was appointed by the GOP to serve as President of the Senate […]

At the Table – July 2020

The Second Special State Legislative Session The second special session again started with a debate of the governor’s peacetime emergency powers. As in the first special session, the Minnesota Senate voted against the governor’s emergency power extension, and the Minnesota House approved the extension. Therefore, the governor’s emergency authority will continue. We expect the governor […]
