Senate DFLers along with Commissioner Thom Petersen of the Minnesota Department of Agriculture held a town hall for rural Minnesota to discuss the most important issues impacting rural Minnesotans. From affordable and accessible healthcare to Rank Choice Voting, members on the call answered questions that were submitted from residents in rural Minnesota that provided an opportunity for transparent conversation on issues that impact rural communities.
This town hall additionally covered the disbursement of funds from the American Rescue Plan, budget estimations, and increased investment in rural Minnesota infrastructure including broadband. With only a month left of session, DFLers have promised to make sure that rural Minnesota is not left behind in recovery efforts and that their voices are heard on policy that impacts them and rural communities statewide.
