2023 a budget year as Minnesota Legislative Session begins

The 93rd Minnesota Legislative Session gets underway today.

Minnesota Farmers Union government relations director Stu Lourey says the makeup of the legislature has changed with a Democratic majority in the Senate.

“Which leaves DFL’ers with unified control of state government. The Governor (Tim Walz) was reelected, the House DFL’ers retained control, and the Senate flipped.”

He tells Brownfield that should allow for more action on the budget.

“And Farmers Union (is) really eager to ensure that our members’ priorities are a part of that.”

Lourey says those priorities include making healthcare more affordable and ensuring more competition in the marketplace.
