2021 Legislative Agenda

Minnesota's 92nd Legislature began on Monday, January 2, 2021. The Legislature is scheduled to adjourn on May 17th. Minnesota will continue as the only state with a split Legislature with DFL control over the House and GOP control over the Senate. Many, if not all, hearings and meetings will take place virtually due to the pandemic. The Minnesota Legislature Homepage includes a calendar for all upcoming meetings.

With limited access to the Capitol, Senate Building, and State Office Building communications with legislators and administration from the people of Minnesota will be crucial. If you haven't already done so, please reach out to your local legislators to introduce yourself and let them know how important their support for rural health will be as we navigate into a post-pandemic world. To see who represents you and access contact information please check out the Minnesota Legislature Who Represents Me? webpage.

MRHA will be monitoring legislative activity with a special focus on access, workforce, reimbursement, and innovation in rural health. To follow along check out our Legislative Tracker 2021-2022.
