2021 Legislative Session Report

It took an incomplete Regular Session, then a Special Session in June, but the Republican-controlled Senate and the Democratic-controlled House completed their work sending a $52b budget to Governor Walz, narrowly avoiding a shutdown.

BAM had another successful session. Like everyone, we had to adapt our advocacy to navigate the challenges of a largely remote/hybrid session. Our April 14th “virtual” Day at the Capitol, BAM Priorities letters, bipartisan local relationships, many Zoom lobbying meetings, and even legislator cell numbers were more critical than ever.

Special thanks to Chair Keith Kylmala for convening and leading BAM’s Government Relations committee. We thank all our members whose expertise and advocacy are key to BAM’s success.
