St. Paul, MN, October 11, 2023 — Legislative Evaluation Assembly of Minnesota (LEA) is releasing its report on the Minnesota legislature’s 2023 session. The 2023 LEA report rates the votes of all 201 legislators on 23 selected bills. The report summarizes these bills and analyzes them in more depth and detail than seen in the popular press. In 2023, LEA calls particular attention to the many reckless, unsustainable and unwise decisions of the 2023 session..
In 2023, LEA felt the need to expand its printed report by four pages to allow us to adequately summarize and evaluate 23 bills. “Even after expanding the report from 12 to 16 pages, we struggled to include mention of the large number of major, radical changes in policy, statutes and appropriations,” noted LEA President Don Lee.
