A focus on 'the big three': Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities to focus on transportation, taxes and bonding in 2017


BEMIDJI—The Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities are ready for another legislative session in St. Paul with the hope of accomplishing what was left unfinished in 2016.

During a press conference call Thursday, coalition lobbyist and former state representative Marty Seifert outlined the strategy for the 2017 session, with major focuses on a tax bill, a bonding bill and transportation funding.

Seifert said the 2016 election was a "rejection of business as usual," with much of Greater Minnesota frustrated by the lack of completion on major legislation in the previous few years.
