Each legislative session, the legal and research staff of Senate Counsel, Research and Fiscal Analysis Office creates summaries for selected bills. When bills are passed by both bodies and signed by the governor, summaries may be created for selected acts.
Act summaries are listed on this page. View Bill Summaries
For background information on the bills process, see Frequently Asked Questions about the Minnesota Legislature.
To find summaries for another year, select the desired year from the pull down menu.
Staff from the office of Senate Counsel, Research and Fiscal Analysis create side-by-side comparison summaries in collaboration with House Research and Fiscal staff that summarize and compare similar bill provisions to be negotiated in a conference committee. These summaries are used by elected representatives and staff to guide their work in the negotiation process. See Side-by-Side Summaries
