“We are striving to bring attention to results of The Chamber’s top legislative priorities in Minnesota and North Dakota, as well as to show appreciation for elected officials who have aligned on so many critical business issues,” stated VP of Public Policy Katherine Grinberg. Additionally, Chamber President and CEO Shannon Full commented, “It is important that our community know how our legislators are voting – for example, only one out of the five North Dakota priorities mentioned above had unanimous Cass County support. It is important to note that there was not unanimous support from our legislators for diversion or workforce funding.”
