ST. PAUL (LEARFIELD) – The 2020 special session at the State Capitol adjourned early Saturday–without agreement on policing bills, a bonding bill or COVID-19 aid.
Senate Minority Leader Susan Kent this morning on the Senate floor said lawmakers should get some rest over the weekend.
“And then come back on Monday and take care of this very important business that needs to be done on behalf of the people of Minnesota,” said Kent. “It is our job, it is a job that we all signed up for, and we are not done and we owe that to the people of Minnesota.”
Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka said they made one final offer to Democrats but could not agree with DFL measures on police reform including restoring voting rights to felons.
