Transportation Disruption?
Government Affairs Discussion
Tuesday, June 19th
7:30am - 9:00am
Country Inn & Suites, Vadnais Heights
3505 Vadnais Center Drive, Vadnais Heights
Guest Speakers
Representative, â€‹Pat Garofalo and Senator Susan Kent
With a transportation paradigm shift coming in a few short years and approximately $450 million dollars in state bonding earmarked for transportation, are the elected representatives focused on the right priorities? Do we need a bold reform agenda to steer our transportation funding in a new direction? These are the questions we will address at our June 19 Government Affairs program. There are some serious issues that are coming to the forefront as we move into the next decade.
Senator Susan Kent, Assistant Minority Leader and member of the Transportation Finance and Policy Committee and Representative Pat Garofalo, Finance Chair of the Tax Ways and Means Committee will be leading our discussion and welcome your questions regarding transportation concerns.
Several of the challenges we will address at this discussion include:
• Will autonomous vehicles lessen the need for commuter rail and bus service?
• Is the gas tax becoming irrelevant as a transportation funding source?
• Is the Legislature doing its job in facing future transportation funding priorities? 

This high powered event is more than a learning experience. It will provide you with pertinent information so you can become an informed business advocate when it comes to our local and statewide transportation policy. Government Affairs sessions not only offer the opportunity to become an informed Chamber member, but are attended by members of our Legislative delegation and local civic leaders. By attending, you receive important one on one contacts with the elected officials who enact policies that impact your business.
A Continental breakfast will be served and there is no cost to attend. Registration is required.

Special Session to fix the tax bill!
Last week we e-mailed a survey to Chamber members asking if the Governor should call a “Special Session” to pass a tax bill.  The response was overwhelming with 74% of the Chamber members surveyed voting yes!

Sensory Friendly (Pay What You Can) performance June 15th: Click HERE to register.
One of the most enduring shows of all time is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is the reimagining of the Biblical story of Joseph, his father Jacob, eleven brothers (or so) and the coat of many colors.

Told entirely through song, with the help of our main characters the Narrators, who are story tellers to kids choir and integrate an interactive classroom feel. The musical follows preferred son Joseph. After being sold into slavery by his brothers, he ingratiates himself with Egyptian noble Potiphar, but ends up in jail after refusing the amorous advances of Potiphar’s wife. While imprisoned, Joseph shares his ability to interpret dreams, and he soon finds himself in front of the mighty but troubled, Elvis-inspired, Pharaoh. Joseph’s solution to Egypt’s famine elevates him to Pharaoh’s right-hand man and reunites him with his family.
The magical musical is full of catchy songs in a variety of styles, from a parody of French ballads (“Those Canaan Days”), to country-western (“One More Angel in Heaven”), calypso (“Benjamin Calypso”), bubble gum rock –n -roll (“Go Go Joseph” )along with the unforgettable classics “Any Dream Will Do” and “Close Every Door.” Join us on our journey as we embark on our dream to empower kids to thrive on lifes’ stage!
