Economic development bills take shape

Over the past few weeks the GMNP has been busy readying its economic development bills for the legislative session. The bills we are focusing on this session tackle some of the impediments to growth in Greater Minnesota, including workforce housing and job training. Additionally, the bills make much-needed changes to current programs, so that they can work better for Greater Minnesota communities and businesses. A summary of the main bills we are working on can be read here.
