ACTION ALERT – Bills need a hearing in the Senate!
Two of the GMNP’s top legislative priorities — the workforce housing tax credit bill (SF 785) and a bill to make critical improvements to the Greater Minnesota Business Expansion Program (SF 783) — have not yet been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Tax Committee. If they do not receive a hearing, it is unlikely that they will be included in the Senate’s omnibus tax bill.
Both bills have already received hearings in the House, so now it is time for the Senate to step up!
Action — Legislators need to hear from YOU!
It is critical that GMNP members and their affiliates call or email Senate Tax Committee Chair Roger Chamberlain and Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka to urge them to hold hearings on SF 785 (workforce housing tax credit) and SF 783 (Greater Minnesota Business Expansion Program improvements).
- Senate Tax Committee Chair Roger Chamberlain: firstname.lastname@example.org or (651) 296-1253
- Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka: Email him using this email form or (651) 296-4875
Spread the Word
