Different Passover needs

Passover begins at sundown Monday, but the Minnesota House and Senate do not agree on how much time Jews need to prepare.

The House plans to adjourn at 2 p.m. Monday, allowing what House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher said is enough time for Jews to prepare. But the Senate plans to adjourn at 3 p.m.

In some years, lawmakers have failed to meet their sundown deadline, let alone leave time for Jewish legislators to drive home and prepare food and other things for the celebration.
