Minnesota DFL's Queer Caucus: Sharing is Caring... HIV Edition
Legislators in the Minnesota House’s “Queer Caucus” celebrated the repeal of laws imposing criminal penalties for HIV exposure and $2 million in funding for gender-neutral school bathrooms.
“As the first Queer Caucus at the Minnesota Legislature, we were adamant on affirming the identities of our first ever Trans woman and non-binary legislators. We have a massive responsibility to our LGBTQIA2S+ communities and their families to ensure we make our state a place of refuge and protection against the rise of hateful legislation from extremist Republicans across the country. Throughout the session, we made it clear that we would not engage in any debates on our right to exist and live,” members of the Queer Caucus said in a joint statement."

Democrats sneak abortion provisions into omnibus bill
Democrats slipped some of the more controversial elements of their abortion agenda into a health and human services omnibus bill on the last day of Minnesota’s legislative session.
Rep. Tina Liebling, DFL-Rochester, clued MinnPost in on this development Saturday, but the final language of the bill wasn’t released until late Sunday, about 24 hours before the end of session.
Liebling authored HF91, a bill that seeks to repeal many of Minnesota’s regulations on the abortion industry. A conference committee included some elements of her bill in its report for the health and human services budget. That committee is scheduled to meet Monday at 8 a.m., the last day of session. Once the committee finalizes its report, it will then be sent to both chambers for an up or down vote.
Liebling, who chairs the conference committee, was unable to get her standalone bill to the floor of either the House or Senate because of opposition within her own party, a sign that the legislation is even more extreme than the “Protect Reproductive Options (PRO) Act.”
Sen. Aric Putnam, DFL-St. Cloud, voted for the PRO Act but said during a town hall this session that he was the reason Liebling’s bill didn’t make it to the Senate floor.
According to the conference committee report, Democrats plan to:
- cancel the Positive Alternatives program;
- amend the “Born Alive Infants Protection Act,” a law that requires doctors to provide medical care to babies who survive abortions. Democrats have deleted from law a requirement for doctors to “preserve the life and health of the born alive infant,” replacing it with a watered-down mandate to “care for the infant who is born alive.” They have also removed the word abortion from the statute;
- gut reporting requirements for abortion facilities, including data on the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, but still require data collection on the number of abortions performed in Minnesota and gestational age;
- repeal a law that mandates a 24-hour waiting period before an abortion while the doctor provides information on the medical risks;
- repeal the “physician-only law,” which requires abortions to be performed only by physicians; and
- repeal a requirement that second- and third-trimester abortions be performed in a hospital.
Liebling told MinnPost Democrats don’t have the votes to repeal a two–parent notification law requiring both parents of a minor to be given notice 48 hours before the procedure.
Some, but not all, of the statutes Democrats plan to repeal were ruled unconstitutional last summer by a Ramsey County judge, who let stand the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and reporting requirements. That ruling, which did not affect the Positive Alternatives program, is currently being appealed.
Legislators have until midnight Monday to pass any remaining bills.
