Marianne’s Update, It Passed! ~ March 23, 2015
Marianne attended the meeting at the capital today with the Senate Agriculture Committee. Here are some of the highlights that she sent.
“The Senate Ag meeting was at capacity in room 112 at the Capitol! Many folks were standing.
Sen. Dibble did a very good presentation followed by testimony from: me, Kathy Zeman, man from Dept of Ag (I think) and woman from MN Grocers Assoc.
One Senator wanted to require insurance of $1,000,000. After much fuss… it will be “recommended” that CFO’s have insurance of a million dollars.
Sen. Terri Bonoff asked to be a co-author and Sen. Dibble agreed.
The Bill as amended was passed with a few opposing. It now goes to the Senate Ag Finance committee.”
Hurray!!!! One more hurdle passed! I don’t know about you all but I am getting so excited!
Thank you so much Marianne for doing such a great job of representing us!
The next stage to pass will be the House Agriculture Finance committee meeting for HF 910. The meeting is Thursday, March 26th at 10:15, room 5, in the State Office Building.
