Lawmakers pick up pace
ST. PAUL - The Minnesota legislative pace picked up in recent days, so much so that it felt more like the frenzied end of session.
Senators face an April 2 deadline for approving all of their spending bills. Representatives must pass their spending bills out of finance committees by then, and finish all work on finance bills in April. Lawmakers must wrap up their work by May 21.
This year's main legislative job is to pass a two-year budget.
