Transfer bill compromised reached; Party conventions held

Yesterday at the Capitol

A compromise on the credit transfer bill, HF 3164, has been reached. The language can be found here. The conference committee report will need to be approved by both bodies before it is sent to the governor.

Today at the Capitol

The House and Senate will not be meeting today or tomorrow due to the DFL state party convention being held in Duluth. As a reminder, the Republican state party convention will be held next week so we can expect another short week. After the state conventions are done, lawmakers will have two weeks to wrap everything up before adjournment Monday, May 17.
