Minnesota Special Session Adjourns Sine Die
The first special session adjourned sine die on July 7 after Minnesota lawmakers finalized the budget and passed several omnibus bills.
The omnibus tax bill passed during the special session included a lobbying ban for legislators.
House File 9 prohibits a sitting member of the Legislature from accepting employment with or otherwise receiving compensation from lobbying firms and government affairs businesses if the member’s job duties include lobbying or providing direct or indirect consulting, advice, or administrative support for lobbying efforts.
The bill is effective January 3, 2023.
