We are down to the wire, with the final two weeks of the legislative session remaining. This past week, the legislature met its May 1 deadline to pass major finance bills off their respective floors and appoint conference committees.
The next significant deadline is May 6, when the governor, Senate majority leader and House speaker will provide fiscal targets to the conference committee chairs. These new targets will set the stage for final funding negotiations.
We are monitoring these committees for significant housing policy and finance items, including the Local Housing Trust Fund State Match, Challenge Fund, the affordable #HousingTaxCredit, and more.
Omnibus tax bill
- House: Marquart; Loeffler; Lislegard; Gomez; Davids
- Senate: Chamberlain; Senjem; Dahms; Howe; Rest
Omnibus agriculture department, rural development, and housing finance bill
- House: Poppe; Hausman; Pelowski; Vang; Gunther
- Senate: Westrom; Weber; Goggin; Draheim; Dziedzic
Please reach out to these conferees and encourage them to support the #Homes4AllMN agenda! Look out for more specific messages to these conference committee members next week, as we enter final legislative session negotiations.
Have a great weekend!
