Last week, Minnesota’s 2019 Legislative session officially hit the midway point. Over the last several weeks, legislators have spent significant time in committee hearings churning through bills to meet their constitutionally obligated deadline to adjourn on May 20.
For the rest of March and into the first weeks of April, the Minnesota Senate and House will compile their respective budgets and there will be numerous twists, turns and surprises along the way. Cutting through the political noise and effectively navigating the halls of the Capitol requires forward-looking political insight and relationships, strategic judgment and persuasive messaging. Let us help you get across the finish line by enhancing your visibility, successfully shaping public perception and persuading decision-makers.
