Tuning in to the special sessions? Here's how

Posted at 3:03 PM on July 19, 2011 by Paul Tosto (1 Comments)

Interested in hearing and watching your Minnesota lawmakers discuss and pass the bills that will end the state shutdown?

Here's a link to the Senate page that will get you to the live video stream.

Here's a link to the House page that will take you to the live feed.

And if you're a glutton for punishment, here's a dual coverage page! (h/t to one of our blog readers).

You can find and read the legislation, summaries and spreadsheets here.

3:15 p.m. UPDATE: MPR News reporter Madeleine Baran writes:


The House session opened with a moment of silence for state Sen. Linda Scheid, who died of cancer in June. A few moments later, Rep. Matt Dean proposed that the House recess so that lawmakers can continue to prepare the budget bill. The proposal passed the House, and the session is now in recess.

3:20 p.m. UPDATE: The Senate has also recessed so members can go over the bills with their caucuses.
