Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

Are committee hearings open to the public?

Yes, all committee hearings are open to the public, including conference committee hearings. Use the Combined Legislative Meeting Calendar to find hearing times and locations.

Some Capitol area buildings are restricting visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please confirm that the building you wish to visit accepts visitors before you arrive.

Many hearings are live-streamed (some audio and some video) online or broadcast live on television. Recordings are also available online. Access live and recorded meetings on the Legislature's Multimedia page. For access to older recordings, consult the Library's Legislative Media Archive.
