The League of Women Voters St. Paul will host an event “Legislative Issues and Legislative Process Reform” to engage the local community on the woes of Minnesota’s legislative process and possible solutions. The event will feature lawyer and lobbyist Nick Harper, Civic Engagement Director for the League of Women Voters Minnesota. The presentation and discussion will take place on Saturday, February 16, at 1:00 pm at the Rondo Community Library.
Over the last two decades, Minnesotans have watched in frustration as the legislative process has increasingly resulted in end-of-session logjams, midnight and closed-door meetings, and unmanageable omnibus bills. The League of Women Voters Minnesota has prioritized improved legislative transparency, an issue garnering recent attention as the newly-formed House Subcommittee on Legislative Reform delves into the problems and potential solutions for the legislative process.
This event will be starting point for engaging Minnesotans of all political preferences on their agency within the legislative process and their questions, concerns, and suggestions for reform. The presentation will summarize current pitfalls and past recommendations.
Light refreshments will be provided.
