How does a bill become a law in MN and you can you contact about it?

Last week I went to an event that talked about how to become civically engaged. They did a concise reminder of how a bill becomes a law in Minnesota. It’s more detailed, less musical that, I’m just a Bill but as we all start looking more closely at broadband  and other bills I thought it might be helpful:

Also I thought it would be helpful to remind folks of the details of the broadband bill that was introduced last week. The quickest description – both the House and Senate are looking for $35 million a year for the next two years (the biennium).

In the House the bill is HF7.

In the Senate the bill is SF9.

You can subscribe to updates from each committee if you want to track what’s happening. Just a little civics reminder for MLK Jr Weekend!
