Minnesota Legislature Adjourns Sine Die
The Legislature adjourned sine die at midnight after a long day on Sunday, May 23.
Prior to adjournment, $260 million of a $900 million budget surplus was allotted to tax credits and cuts for parents, farmers, businesses, and college students. Lawmakers also passed extra spending measures for broadband internet infrastructure development and a statewide voluntary preschool program. Despite several last minute efforts, the Legislature could not come to agreement on a bonding bill to fund construction and transportation projects prior to the end of the session.
A special session could be called soon to address the bonding bill.
