We are embarking on bicameral, bipartisan, fiscally responsible citizen hearings. It is important for Minnesotans to share their perspectives on the budget and priorities for Minnesota’s future. Rather than full committees traveling the state, we will be sending smaller groups to specific areas. We will travel together to minimize fuel costs (and emissions). There will be no overnight stays.
I hope that you will attend a hearing and share your point of view and your best ideas. Here is the schedule thus far. If there are changes, I will post them.
As always, thanks for the opportunity to serve.
