Reforming Minnesota’s State Boards and Commissions
For the week of January 12th, 2014
There are more than 160 state boards and commissions that collectively cost Minnesota taxpayers $160 million per year. Some have governing bodies that are too large, purposes that are too vague or requirements for membership that are too political. Governor Dayton and some legislators say greater oversight is needed. On this week’s Access Minnesota, House Speaker Paul Thissen and Representative Mary Liz Holberg discuss legislative efforts to address this issue.
