In 2017, the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library received an appropriation to digitize more than 29,000 tapes of legislative proceedings from 1991 to 2003. This digitization project and resulting database enhances the existing collection of digital files, making these valuable primary records of the Legislature accessible to anyone at any time and preserving them into the future.
