Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

What is a conference committee?

It is a committee made up of members from each house appointed to reconcile the differences between two versions of a bill that has been passed by both bodies. Each conference committee usually has either three or five members from both the House and the Senate.

You can view bills that are in conference committee on the Conference Committee Actions page.
