Floor Calendar Prediction for the Week

Explore:  Proposed Legislation

The 2013 Minnesota Legislative Session is all about lengthy floor sessions this week. It is risky to predict legislative schedules but this is only a tentative guide for the week. Keep in mind schedules change quickly at the Capitol. The Senate will hear the Omnibus Transportation Policy Bill (SF1270 Dibble) on the floor today along with a few other bills. On Wednesday the schedule is up in the air because of the need to suspend the rules in order to take up HHS (SF1034 Lourey) or E-12 (SF453 Wiger). Thursday they will most likely take up Health and Human Services, Friday is scheduled to be E-12 and Saturday session is not yet scheduled but could include the Omnibus Tax Bill (SF 552).

In the House, Monday was a nine hour debate of the Omnibus Health and Human Services Bill (HF1233 Huntley); Tuesday is K-12 (HF630 Marquart); Wednesday should be the Tax Bill (HF677 Lenczewski) and Transportation Finance (HF1444 Hornstein) is also on the Calendar for the Day. Thursday is likely Higher Education (HF1692 Pelowski) and Friday is open. A Saturday session is also planned for the House.

The big bills still on the list include energy, legacy and bonding. The Transportation Finance Bill is still in Senate Taxes as is the Omnibus Senate Tax Bill.
