We’ve got issues. I hope you do too.

The Legislature will gavel into session on March 8, 2016. With a budget surplus of $1.2 billion and several key policy issues like taxes and transportation unresolved following the 2015 session, next year’s legislative session promises to be very important to our community and businesses.

As your Director of Government & Institutional Affairs, I work full time to raise our region’s visibility with state leaders, provide you with critical information on key policy issues that you can use to advocate for your business, and lead GMG’s efforts to advocate for key policy initiatives that will advance our region. I’ve got issues, and I hope that you can help me by sharing yours!

GMG is currently in the process of establishing policy priorities that we will monitor and advocate on in the coming legislative session and we want to hear from you! What are the key policy issues that you’re concerned about? What issues would you like GMG to keep you informed on during the legislative session? What policy priorities do you think GMG ought to pursue on behalf of our members?

Your input in shaping our priorities and strategy is critical to our success. Please take a moment to contact me with your thoughts. You can call me at 507-385-6657, email me at [email protected], or leave your comments anonymously by clicking here.
