St. Paul, Minn. – Assistant Majority Leader Kelly Morrison (DFL-Deephaven) has been appointed by Speaker Melissa Hortman to the House and Senate Environment Conference Committee. Five appointed members of the House and five members of the Senate will work over the course of the next few weeks to find a compromise on a final bill to bring to each respective chamber for a final vote.
“Minnesotans cherish our unique natural resources and want to see them safeguarded for generations to come,” said Rep. Morrison. “We are a divided state legislature, but I’m confident that by working together, we can find common ground to deliver a strong and equitable environment budget that protects our air, water, lands, and wildlife.”
Conference Committees are expected to begin meeting as soon as this week.
