Capitol leaders would change way of estimating laws’ costs

House and Senate leaders want to change how Minnesota estimates the cost of new legislation.

They want to create a legislative budget office to handle the estimates instead of the state office that does it now.

House Speaker Kurt Daudt says relying on the Minnesota Management and Budget office to appraise the cost of proposed laws violates the state’s separation of powers. He and Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk have each introduced bills to end the current arrangement.
