Legislative Breakfast Series - Minnesota’s Premier Legislative and Political Forum
Eggs, Bacon, and Political Commentary
The TwinWest Chamber of Commerce’s Legislative Breakfast series is Minnesota’s premier legislative and political forum. Each breakfast unites compelling, well-known speakers and state legislators with more than 150 business leaders from across the Twin Cities.
The series strikes a balance between public policy and intriguing dialogue while presenting the opportunity to develop strong relationships with legislators and public officials.
Some of the big names and featured topics from past Legislative Breakfasts include: Governor Mark Dayton; a session preview with House and Senate Majority and Minority Leaders; Health and Human Services Commissioner Mike Rothman; Met Council Chair Susan Haigh; Congressman Erik Paulsen; Political Party Chairs; and the always entertaining and insightful session wrap-up panel with moderator Tom Hauser from KSTP’s “At Issue.”Due to the popularity of the Legislative Breakfast programs you may be interested in learning more about or securing a sponsorship to market your business or organization to TwinWest members.

"The state of Minnesota is at a crossroads right now," said Mike Dean, executive director of Common Cause Minnesota, at a press conference announcing the proposal. "The upcoming election will determine what direction the state takes. If this legislature fails to act now to address the problems created by Citizens United, it will become more susceptible to the influence of special interest groups."
