February Topic: Economic Development & the Environment - The Balance of Growth vs. Preservation
With multiple major energy projects garnering attention in Minnesota while trying to jump regulatory hurdles, we will explore the give and take between development and the environment as it relates to the Enbridge Line 3 replacement, and the Twin Metals and PolyMet mining projects.
The TwinWest Chamber of Commerce's Issues & Insights 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 12-session series strikes a balance between our top economic, community and business issues and intriguing, diverse insights while presenting the opportunity to develop strong relationships with legislators and elected officials.
This year we will address some of the leading topics including transportation/infrastructure, education, workforce, labor mandates, cyber security, the opioid epidemic, climate change, balance between economic development & environment, as well as insights provided by our Governor, US Senators and Congressmen, and other elected officials.
