Ep. 21: Mid-legislative session review with Scott McMahon

Back in January, President and CEO of the Center for Rural Policy and Development, Julie Tesch, had a conversation with Scott McMahon, the Executive Director of the Greater MN Partnership on the upcoming legislative session. In this episode, Julie brought Scott back on for a mid-legislative session review.

So far, this session has lived up to it’s unorthodox hype. From a state budget forecast projecting a deficit to now a billion dollar surplus, the interesting legislative interactions due to Zoom meetings, and rural speakers testifying on the need for broadband literally dropping out in the middle of their testimony due to bad internet connections – this session has had it all.
