Minnesota: The Minnesota Legislature meets on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of each odd-numbered year. When the first Monday in January falls on January 1, the legislative assembly meets on the first Wednesday after the first Monday. It also meets in special session when called by the governor. In the even-numbered years, the legislative assembly convenes on a date set by joint agreement of both bodies. The state constitution limits the Legislature to meeting 120 legislative days during each biennium. In addition, the Legislature may not meet in regular session after the first Monday following the third Saturday in May of any year. During this time, the House or Senate may not adjourn for more than three days without the consent of the other body.
