We are in the final month of the 2024 legislative session, and this is a short week in observance of Passover. This week we packed in several committee meetings and floor sessions. In addition, the Education Policy Bill Conference Committee, which I co-chair, met this week. You can watch committee video of Wednesday’s meeting here and Thursday’s meeting here.

Gaveling in the Legislative Session

Departing members of the legislature are invited to gavel in a floor session. I was asked to perform this honor on Wednesday. You can watch the video here.


Tomorrow: DEA Prescription Take Back Day

Tomorrow, Saturday, April 27, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is holding their annual Take Back Day, encouraging everyone to clean out their medicine cabinets and turn in unwanted prescriptions. To find out more information and a location near you, click here.

Free Park Day

Tomorrow, April 27 is the next free entrance day to all Minnesota parks. Minnesota state parks are open year-round, and there is a state park within 30 miles of most Minnesotans. Whether you stay for the whole weekend or just spend a few hours outside, this is a great opportunity to explore someplace new and make lifetime memories. So be sure to get out and visit one or some of our wonderful parks!
