Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

How are executive appointments confirmed?

The Senate is authorized to give its advice and consent on executive appointments under Minnesota Statute 15.066. Appointments made by the Governor to state agencies that require confirmation by the Senate are referred to the appropriate committees. The Engrossing Secretary processes governor's appointments for Senate approval and fields any questions. Lists of appointees are available for current and past bienniums.
