With the start of the 2012 Legislative Session now less than six weeks away, House Speaker Kurt Zellers, R-Maple Grove, has sent out a detailed list of other key dates.
House GOP leaders are planning an early end for the session on April 30.
Here’s are the calendar highlights:
Tuesday, January 12 – Pre-introduction of House bills
Tuesday January 24 – House session convenes at noon
Wednesday, February 25 – One Minnesota Conference
February 2-7 – Prencint caucus break
Wednesday, February 8 – House session convenes at noon
April 6-13 – Easter/Passover break
Monday, April 16 – Official House business begins at 8:15 a.m., session convenes at 3:00 p.m.
Monday, April 30 – House will adjourn sine die
It’s still not clear if the Minnesota Senate plans to follow the same calendar.
GOP Majority spokesman Michael Brodkorb said Senate leaders are still working on their session schedule.
“There may or may not be some differences,” Brodkorb said.
