Minnesota Senate Adjourns Third Special Session

Today, the Minnesota State Senate adjourned the third special session of the year. Following adjournment, Senator Susan Kent released the following statement:

“This short special session we passed bipartisan legislation that will support our veterans and disability service providers. Unfortunately, Senate Republicans continue to provide lip service when it comes to working together with DFLers. Without any previous or public notice, they called for a last-minute confirmation vote for the Commissioner of the Department of Labor and Industry. The dishonest representation of today’s agenda is irresponsible, completely disingenuous, and fails to serve the best interests of working Minnesotans during a global pandemic,” said Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent. “Once again Senate Republicans tried to end the Governor’s peacetime emergency powers without offering alternatives or solutions. We cannot jeopardize the progress we have made without a plan of action for the state’s COVID-19 response. They have failed to hold any hearings on unemployment benefits, housing assistance, schools reopening, or long-term care. It is clear there is a lack of interest in addressing the real problems Minnesota families are facing.”
