Minnesota legislative Democrats promise unity on sweeping agenda
From abortion access to paid leave, the party's long-sought priorities could become a reality
January 5, 2023
Minnesota Democrats rolled out a familiar set of top priorities Wednesday - tackling climate change, affordable housing and child care. Creating a paid family and medical leave program. Expanding voting access and ensuring abortion access.
And for the first time in nearly a decade, it's more than a wish list.
Newly in control of both the House and Senate, legislative Democrats held a joint news conference to show a united front on issues they've long pushed for but could now make a reality if they can keep their narrow majorities on the same page.
