Senate Republicans Adjourn Before Finishing Work

SAINT PAUL, MN— Today, the Minnesota Senate adjourned the 2020 special session before finishing the work Minnesotans are calling for. Among the unfinished work is a robust bonding bill, meaningful criminal justice reform legislation, and critical federal funding for local governments. Following adjournment, Senator Susan Kent released the following statement:

“Senate DFLers want to stay in session until we get our work done. There was no reason or need to adjourn today. As state leaders it is our responsibility to do the jobs Minnesotans elected us to do and I am deeply disappointed Senate Republicans chose to leave before finishing our work,” said Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent. “All special session, Republicans have offered lip service on their willingness to work together only to shut us out when it comes to doing the actual work. Just because this work is hard and time-consuming isn’t an excuse not to do it. Minnesotans expect more from us and we must do better by them.”
