Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

What is a bill?

A bill is a proposal for a new law, a change in current law, repeal of a current law, or for a constitutional amendment. It consists of a title, enacting clause, and body (text), which is examined and approved in its form by the Office of the Revisor of Statutes.

In the Senate, bills are called Senate Files (SF). Bills are referred to as House Files (HF) in the House of Representatives.
