Following its Easter break, the Minnesota Legislature will come back in late April to begin its final sprint to complete its 2019 session. So far, Governor Walz and the DFL-controlled House have really taken liberties with their vision of “One Minnesota” and campaign promises of bipartisan proposals.
Senate District 49’s program on April 23 will look at some of the more outlandish and one-sided initiatives, such as:
• The 70% increase in the gas tax
• The plan for Minnesota to achieve “carbon-free” energy production by 2050
• The “sick tax” on health care providers and the expiration of Minnesota’s reinsurance program
Our guest speaker will be Jason Flohrs, State Director for the Minnesota Chapter of Americans for Prosperity. Jason will give an update on the issues AFP is working on at the capitol, outlining what the DFL initiatives could mean to Minnesotans if implemented.
Important at this point in the legislative process, Jason will highlight ways that activists can get involved in the fight and make your voices heard right now - without waiting around for 2020. He will talk about AFP’s unique model of advocacy focused on building and empowering grassroots movements on the issues that matter most to Minnesota’s future.
Jason Flohrs brings years of legislative, grassroots organizing, and advocacy experience to the chapter. Prior to joining AFP, Jason FLohrs served as Executive Director for the North Dakota Republican Party. He has managed state and national campaigns throughout the Upper Midwest, including U.S. House races in Minnesota, Iowa, and North Dakota. In other roles, Jason operated his own public affairs consulting firm, served as Director of Government Affairs for TwinWest Chamber of Commerce, and worked for the House Republican Caucus at the Minnesota State Capitol.
