Agriculture, Rural Development and Housing conference committee update

The Agriculture, Rural Development, and Housing conference committee met a few times this week to review the differences between the House and Senate spreadsheets and bill language. The conference committee heard from the Department of Agriculture, Minnesota Housing Finance Agency, AURI, and the Board of Animal Health. No provisions were adopted by the conference committee. The conference committee is waiting for leadership from the Legislature and Governor Walz to determine its budget target; Senate DFLers hope substantial progress can be made in conference committee once the budget target is known.
