MinnPost’s interactive team and political reporters have joined forces to track the most important legislative bills during the 2013 session. We’ve identified key pieces of legislation in the categories below — simply click on an icon to see what we’re following. With each bill, we have provided a plain speak description of the proposed law and why it matters. You’ll also find latest actions, co-sponsors, links to the bills’ full text, and our reporters’ stories and updates throughout the session.
We welcome your ideas and feedback in the comments below or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
