I began my first term in the Minnesota House determined to advocate for Greater Minnesota. A top concern of mine is how legislative influence tilts strongly toward the Twin Cities.
There are 29 House committees, 22 of which are chaired by metro legislators. What is truly baffling is agriculture finance decisions will now be made by a committee with a Minneapolis environmentalist chairperson who has voted against almost all of the ag finance bills the last decade.
