(St. Paul, MN) — State lawmakers aren’t working at the Minnesota Capitol today (Monday) on this M-L-K holiday, but they’re back tomorrow (Tuesday) and abortion will again be in the spotlight. A controversial bill that would put abortion rights into Minnesota law awaits a vote in the Minnesota House and has a third hearing in the Senate on Wednesday. And another controversial bill that’s moving forward would repeal a wide variety of anti-abortion state laws the courts have struck down, but which remain on the books.
