Minnesota's 2024 legislative session will focus on bonding projects, fixes to new laws

The Minnesota Democrats in control at the Capitol will downshift in the 2024 legislative session starting Monday, meaning major policy changes and spending proposals won't fly through the chambers in succession as they did from the outset a year ago.

DFL leaders say they will focus on passing a bonding bill and tweaking the details of several major bills from last year, notably legal cannabis and the limits placed on the authority of school resource officers.

Leaders from both parties made clear they're cautious about new spending, willing to wait and, as Gov. Tim Walz said, "See where we land," as the sweeping policy changes from the 2023 session settle.
