ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Democrats will take control of the Minnesota House when the 2019 Legislature convenes at noon.
Democrats gained 18 seats in the November elections to win the House with a 75-59 majority.
Senate Republicans hold a narrow two-seat majority going into the session. Their leaders plan a news conference Tuesday morning to unveil their first five bills of the session. They say family priorities will be at the center.
House Democratic leaders plan to unveil their first 10 bills Wednesday.
Gun control supporters plan to rally in the Capitol Rotunda Tuesday afternoon. They’re backing background checks on all gun sales and a “red flag” law that would let families and police go to court to temporarily take guns away from people who are a danger to themselves or others.
