Select Committee Amendments

An Amendment may be made available to the public before the meeting at which it will be offered or before it will appear in the Senate Journal following its adoption.  Please read narrative on the linked page for an explanation of this process.

Committee Engrossments

If a committee hears and amends a bill, but does not complete action on it, committee staff will sometimes recommend that a committee engrossment be prepared to show how the amendments fit into the bill.  Additional amendments to the bill in that committee must be drawn to the committee engrossment, not to the original bill.

Likewise, if a division recommends amendments to a bill that are extensive, but not so extensive as to be in the form of a delete-everything amendment, committee staff will often recommend that a committee engrossment be prepared.  Additional amendments to the bill in that committee must be drawn to the committee engrossment, not to the original bill.

These committee engrossments will be shown on this page.

Division/Subcommittee Reports

When a division or subcommittee acts on a bill, that action is shown on the Minnesota Legislation and Bill Status under Committee Hearings and Actions.  If the division or subcommittee recommends that the bill be amended, those amendments are shown in a division or subcommittee report.  Division or subcommittee reports that recommend amendments will be shown on this page.
