Legislative Session Recap 2022

The 2022 Minnesota legislative session came to an end on Monday, May 23 with legislative leaders unable to make progress on several big-ticket items still left on the table. Despite an earlier global budget agreement between the DFL-led House and the GOP-led Senate on providing tax relief and additional spending for government agencies and programs, conference committee leaders and Walz administration officials watched as time on the clock expired at midnight.

Among some of the omnibus bills that the leaders could not come to an agreement on were ones dealing with taxes, environment and natural resources, transportation, public safety, capital investment, and health and human services. House Speaker Melissa Hortman (DFL – Brooklyn Park) and Senate Majority Leader Jeremy Miller (R – Winona) met with Gov. Tim Walz after the regular session adjourned to determine if the parameters of a special session could be agreed upon to complete work on the outstanding legislation.
