- Legislators returned to the Capitol on April 18 following a break for Easter and Passover. With less than five weeks remaining in the legislative session, the pressure is on legislators and the Governor to begin negotiating bills that will fund state government operations for the next biennium. Many MNAAP priorities, including pediatric mental health investments, nurse home visiting programs, programs to support early brain development, and increasing health equity remain in play.
