Legislature considers rules for closing because of weather

Mn Legislature
Mn Legislature

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- The Minnesota Senate rules committee is working to outline a procedure that would be put in place if the senate were forced to close for extreme weather.

It comes on the heels of governor mark dayton's decision to close schools statewide during last week's extreme cold, and some confusion over what that meant for the state's lawmakers.

Secretary of the Senate Joann Zoff says it's really meant to eliminate any future confusion and let senators know where to go to get that information.

The senate has never before cancelled a session because of inclement weather, but Zoff says it's a good idea to have a policy in place before the 11th hour.

The new policy is expected to be implemented by the end of the week.
