The budget bill conferees

GOP leadership in the Minnesota House and Senate have named many of the members of the budget bill conference committees. Those members will be tasked with reconciling the differences between the House and Senate budget bills.

Not all of the conferees have been named yet but I’m posting the the list and will update when the others are named..

There aren’t many Democrats named to these conference committees but that may be because not many Democrats supported the budget bills.

    There aren’t many Democrats named to these conference committees but that may be because not many Democrats supported the budget bills.

    Tom, you sure it isn’t the My Way or the Highway cover that the Republican Committee Chairs stapled to the front of each bill that’s keeping the Dems away?
