Policy in Focus – Your 30 Minutes Update on Capitol Action

Friday, June 8, 2018 11:00am - 11:30am CDT

Get a quick update with a funders’ twist about what’s happening at the State Capitol in Saint Paul and in Washington, D.C.

Want to know about Endow Minnesota or other efforts to address charitable giving in the legislature’s tax conformity deliberations? What’s the status of voter access reforms? Is the legislature going to make big decisions about early childhood learning and development, stable housing to help kids learn, workforce development, or disaster preparedness?

We’re also tracking federal action on the 2020 Census, next steps for charitable giving under the new tax law, continuing efforts to repeal the Johnson Amendment, and implications for grantmakers of shifts in the federal budget.

Sure, you can read about all of this on MCF’s web site at Policy in Focus. But, our 30-minutes video briefing gives you more than the “what’s what;” we listen to your advice, talk a little strategy about what you can do to help, and welcome requests to scope out the legislative status of other issues of interest to you.

You can participate through video conference or by phone. The connection information will be included in your registration confirmation email.

The next Policy in Focus video conference is:
