BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 202A.14, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [TIME AND MANNER OF HOLDING; POSTPONEMENT.] 
At 7:30 7:00 p.m. on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in 
March in every state general election year there shall be held 
for every election precinct a party caucus in the manner 
provided in sections 202A.14 to 202A.19, except that in the 
event of severe weather a major political party may request the 
secretary of state to postpone caucuses.  If a major political 
party makes a request, or upon the secretary of state's own 
initiative, after consultation with all major political parties 
and on the advice of the federal weather bureau and the 
department of transportation, the secretary of state may declare 
precinct caucuses to be postponed for a week in counties where 
weather makes travel especially dangerous.  The secretary of 
state shall submit a notice of the postponement to news media 
covering the affected counties by 6:00 p.m. on the scheduled day 
of the caucus.  A postponed caucus may also be postponed 
pursuant to this subdivision.
