(The governor also addresses Minnesota Farm Bureau members on their lobby day (11am) , before a key House committee this afternoon (1pm) discusses a major agriculture budget bill.  Members of the Minnesota Nurses Association are at the Capitol today, testifying at a hearing on a bill concerning the proposed Fairview/Sanford merger (1030am)  and one that would give nurses more control over staffing decisions at hospitals (1pm).  Governor Walz does a ceremonial signing to spotlight a bill designed to crack down on catalytic converter thefts in Minnesota.  And there’s a hearing this evening, after two officials were removed amid reports of a hostile work environment which jeopardized care at the state veterans home in Hastings.
