Legislative Update

Minnesota lawmakers are entering the final stretch of the 2014 session with just three weeks left before they must adjourn an May 19th.

A number of bills still need to be settled and House-Senate conference committees are beginning to meet according to House DFL Speaker Paul Thissen.

Republican Representative Greg Davids has begun work on two conference committees...one discussing differences in a second tax relief bill...and the other talking about a bill that Davids says is trying to drive healthcare coverage for public school teachers down.

Meanwhile, the House is still waiting for the Senate to release its bonding bill proposal so a conference committee can begin working out those differences.
