Judiciary conference committee gets stuck at the starting gate

The Judiciary and Public Safety conference committee has met three times in the past week to walk through the spreadsheets of the Senate and House proposals and to hear more about the House policy proposals. Despite an agreed upon May 6 deadline, global targets for the conference committees have not been released, which is preventing major work on putting together an agreed upon proposal. The Senate and House positions are vastly different – DFLers are committed to investing in public safety, the state’s corrections system, and the judicial branch while Republicans have an incredibly limited budget increase.
