The weekend blizzard is affecting business at the State Capitol at the start of the week. The Minnesota Senate went into session but recessed immediately so that some members — those from southern Minnesota in particular — can get in to the Capitol. When the Senate resumes business, lawmakers are scheduled to debate and vote on a bill dealing with the federal Help America Vote Act, which includes the full state match required to permanently secure a federal grant. Later in the day, a Senate committee examines Governor Tim Walz’s budget proposal for health and human services, and Republicans are promising tough questions. State representatives have a little extra time to get to the Capitol because the House floor session isn’t until late afternoon.
