AMFA on November 11: Legislative review with the MN Chamber of Commerce
Join us VIRTUALLY for an AMFA General Meeting on November 11. Free to attend.
Eight days after one of the most contentious elections in history, please join us for a discussion of the outcome (if known!) and the outlook for Minnesota’s business community and manufacturing industry. Laura Bordelon, the Minnesota Chamber’s senior vice president for advocacy, will highlight the results and preview the business community priorities for the 2021 Legislative Session.
Laura will also touch on the recent legislative victory for Minnesota businesses with the passage of Section 179 federal conformity, along with the bonding bill in October, which will provide important tax relief to capital intensive businesses. AMFA has been a part of the Chamber’s “Invest in Minnesota” Coalition.
