Minnesota Lawmakers to Return To The Capitol on Thursday

Minnesota lawmakers are preparing to return to the Capitol to beef up the state’s fight against COVID-19 and help residents cope with the economic disruptions.


House Speaker Melissa Hortman and Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka notified legislators late Tuesday they will reconvene Thursday.


The House meets at noon, while the Senate will gather at 2pm.


The House and Senate have been in recess since March 17th when they approved $200 million to help the state’s health care system respond to the pandemic.
