Frequently Asked Questions About the Minnesota Legislature

What is a resolution?

Resolutions are formal actions of the Legislature which express intent on the part of one or both bodies, but are not codified into Minnesota statutes upon passage. Each body can pass a separate resolution to express individual intent. They can also pass resolutions jointly or concurrently.

The Revisor of Statutes Bill Drafting Manual's chapter 6 discusses the different types of resolutions and more.
