It also features involvement from the Association of Minnesota Counties, the League of Minnesota Cities, the Minnesota Association of Townships, the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities, the Minnesota Rural Caucus, the Minnesota Association of Small Cities, and members of the governor’s administration.
The group will meet once per month during the interim and bring forward potential legislation when the 2015 legislative session convenes.
