Minnesota legislators appear to be on track to finish their work before their mandated Monday adjournment.

Before the congratulations, take note: the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library found that in the second year of the biennium, like this year, "they have adjourned sine die before the constitutional adjournment date in all but two years since 1973."

In other words, finishing Friday when they have to finish by Monday would not be unusual.
