Description

Advancing affordable and clean energy and developing a qualified workforce to handle the energy demands of the future are desired outcomes of the major energy appropriations bill.  Senator Dave Senjem, R-Rochester, talks with Capitol Report moderator Shannon Loehrke about Minnesota's energy future and new legislative efforts to further the state's goals.

In one of the most hard-fought and controversial budget areas, the legislature ultimately provided $2.64 billion dollars over the next two years to fund the Department of Public Safety, the Department of Corrections and the court system.  Senate Judiciary and Public Safety Chair Warren Limmer, R-Maple Grove, reviews the high-profile aspects of the measure.

Also in the program, Governor Tim Walz holds a ceremonial bill signing to highlight the importance of the recently-enacted Energy Conservation and Optimization Act of 2021. Plus, DFL lawmakers call for ending the spread of misinformation about the COVID-19 vaccines.
