(St. Paul, MN) Minnesota’s 2021 Legislative Session officially began January 5 with Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen (R-Alexandria) and 66 other State Senators swearing-into office during a ceremony at the State Capitol.
“As we kick off the 2021 legislative session, I am committed to working to end Governor Walz’s peacetime emergency powers so that our children can get back to school, dying businesses can open up, and Minnesotans can return to work,” said Sen. Ingebrigtsen. “This is a unique session in Minnesota. As we continue to grapple with the pandemic, our state faces a looming budget shortfall and must complete a two-year budget. As we begin that process, I will work hard to ensure that government spending stays in check, that waste and fraud are addressed, and that Minnesota’s hard-working taxpayers are protected.”
During the first few weeks of the session, most of Sen. Ingebrigtsen’s work will take place in Senate Committees. During the 2021-2022 session, Senator Ingebrigtsen has been appointed to serve on the following committees:
- Chair of the Environment and Natural Resources Policy and Legacy Finance
- Vice-Chair of the Finance Committee
- Judiciary and Public Safety Finance and Policy Committee
