Senator Melisa Franzen, DFL-Edina, was appointed to the Senate Finance Committee. The Finance Committee reviews every appropriation bill and approves the finance division bills before they appear on the Senate floor for a final vote.
“I look forward to working with the Finance Committee members this session,” said Senator Franzen. “I am humbled by this appointment. It is an honor to serve on this committee that has an immense responsibility to review every bill with fiscal implications to our state’s budget. I will serve as a steward to taxpayer dollars and invest in our state’s priorities to support hardworking Minnesotans.”
The Finance Committee currently meets from 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at the Minnesota Senate Building in Room 1200. Senator Franzen will no longer serve on the Taxes Committee given this appointment.
