Legislative Update: The 2024 Session Adjourns

Friday, May 31, 2024
Laurie Pryor 2023 Banner



The 2024 legislative session has wrapped up and I am proud of our accomplishments, as we built on the success of the extraordinary 2023 session to help all Minnesotans succeed.

Session Successes

The Minnesota House collaborated with Governor Walz and our Senate colleagues to pass all major supplemental budget bills. You can find nonpartisan summaries about the final agreements here: Transportation, Labor and Housing, Energy and Agriculture, Public Safety and Judiciary, Commerce and Cannabis, Jobs and Economic Development, Environment and Natural Resources, K-12 Education, Higher Education, Health, Human Services, and Elections.

I serve as Education Policy Committee chair, and the major legislation package crafted this year focuses on important measures to give schools flexibility, addresses students’ mental health, eliminates some paperwork, addresses protected speech, and more, placing the focus on our students.

Other measures approved this session included a gun violence prevention bill including tougher penalties for straw purchasers and a ban on binary triggers, a bill to increase wages for rideshare drivers while keeping companies operating in Minnesota, a health occupational licensure and scoping bill, legislation improving our child welfare services and addressing racial disparities, and a tenants’ rights package.

Almanac at the Capitol

This is my last session serving as your representative, and just before the session concluded, I was interviewed on Almanac at the Capitol about my time in the legislature. My term ends next January.
