Senator Sandra Pappas issues statement on Senate adjournment

The Minnesota Senate adjourned on Monday night without passing a budget. In response, Senator Sandra Pappas (DFL – Minneapolis) released the following statement: 

“It’s unfortunate that the Senate adjourned before we completed the important work of passing a biennial budget. The events of the past two years have uncovered the deep racial and economic inequities that impact Minnesotans, and it is our job to take bold action to level the playing field so that all Minnesotans have an opportunity to succeed.”

“I am disappointed that the Republican majority failed to act on police accountability and criminal justice reform, policies which Minnesotans are demanding and have earned broad support from across the state. It is incumbent upon the Senate majority to take up those issues and I look forward to addressing them with my colleagues during a special session.”
