The Minnesota State Capitol.

Minnesota legislators who have been working outside the public eye to reach a deal on COVID-19 relief say they plan to convene Thursday at the Capitol to approve the aid.

While lawmakers have essentially recessed until mid-April because of the COVID-19 emergency, members of the state House disclosed details Tuesday of meetings they have been holding for the past week to discuss bills ranging from driver's license expiration forgiveness to child care policy proposals related to the coronavirus. They are also reviewing Gov. Tim Walz's supplemental budget proposals that include money to help food shelves, homeless shelters and veterans weather the pandemic.
