Senate Committees
The Higher Education Policy and Finance Committee is a standing committee of the Minnesota House of Representatives.

Per Rule 6.01 of the House Rules, standing committees of the Minnesota House of Representatives are appointed by the Speaker of the House.[1] Committees are appointed at the beginning of each biennial session. Up to 30 days prior to the session, the Speaker-designate is to submit a list of proposed standing committees and divisions to all minority caucuses. Up to 15 days before the session's start, the Minority Leader may submit proposed minority assignments to the Speaker-designate, who must comply in keeping with attaining proportionate representation. With the exception of the Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration, one may not serve as chair of a committee or another with a similar jurisdiction for longer than three consecutive two-year sessions.[2]

Function

The committee holds public hearings on bills to put each bill into its best form. During the bill's hearing, the committee can take testimony from the bill's sponsors, the general public and experts in the areas the bill affects.

The committee has several courses of action it can take:

  • amend the bill;
  • combine two or more bills under one file number;
  • recommend a bill to pass as introduced;
  • recommend it be passed as amended;
  • send it to another committee for consideration;
  • vote not to approve the bill; or
  • table it, which in essence delays action.[3][4]
(a) Except as provided in Rule 1.15, a House or Senate bill that directly, substantially, and specifically affects any present or future financial obligation, budget policy, or revenue of the State must be referred as provided in paragraphs (b) and (c) to the appropriate Committee before the bill receives its second reading. A bill that negligibly affects any present or future financial obligation, budget policy, or revenue of the State is not subject to mandatory referral under this rule.

(b) A bill subject to paragraph (a) reported by a finance committee must, if recommended to pass, be subsequently referred to the Ways and Means Committee, unless the bill has a negligible fiscal impact and is subject to direct reference to the Floor under Rule 6.05.[5][4]
