Minnesota Legislature Adjourns Sine Die
The Minnesota Legislature adjourned sine die on May 20, 2018.
The Legislature passed bills relating to misrepresenting service animals, prohibiting local governments from disarming police officers, and funding for the state’s vehicle license and registration system.
Tensions between the Republican-controlled House and Democrat Gov. Mark Dayton were apparent during the final day of the session as Republicans sent a series of bills to Dayton similar to previously vetoed bills.
Dayton has reiterated he will not call a special session for any unfinished business.
