Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

Does the Legislature offer translation or interpretation services?

There is a pilot program offered for the 2024 legislative session to provide live interpretation services in Hmong, Spanish, and Somali for hearings, committee meetings, response to phone calls, and constituent meetings. This pilot will include translation services in Hmong, Spanish, and Somali of documents, emails, and letters beginning March 1, 2024 for the 2024 legislative session.

Members of the public will need to request services through a legislator, the legislator’s assistant, or committee staff because staff must initiate the services. You can locate contact information for legislative assistants by clicking on the legislator’s name from the House Member list or the Senator’s list. You can locate committee administrators on the House committee list or the Senate committee list. The legislator, the legislator’s staff, or committee staff can request interpretation or translation services for those members of the public who need it.

Contact if you have any questions or for clarification.
