Draft House Committee Schedule for 2023-24

House DFL leaders have announced the committee structure, chairs and the schedule lawmakers will follow when they convene Jan. 3, 2023.

“The Minnesota House DFL and our committee chairs are looking forward to working with the Minnesota Senate and Governor Walz to improve the lives of Minnesotans,” House Speaker Melissa Hortman (DFL-Brooklyn Park) said in a statement that includes a list of committees and chairs. “Our committee chairs and our caucus reflect the diversity of Minnesota and represent the entire state — from rural communities to the suburbs to Minneapolis and St. Paul. We are ready to work hard, work together, and work quickly to meet the needs of Minnesotans.”

Under the new structure, the House will have 29 committees or divisions, a decrease of two from current levels. Committee membership is expected to be named in December.

The weekly schedule will remain largely the same, with two blocks of morning meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; two blocks of afternoon meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday; and one block of afternoon meetings Thursday. Meetings will begin at 8:30 a.m. on those days and are scheduled to last 90 minutes.

There will also be one block of meetings scheduled for 1 p.m. Monday. There are no regularly scheduled meetings on Friday.

Floor sessions will be held Mondays and Thursdays, beginning at 3:30 p.m. both days.
