Lawmakers From Regional Centers Form Group

Duluth, Mankato, Moorhead, Rochester and St. Cloud legislators have banded together to deal with issues regional centers face.

“Regionalization is increasing,” Sen. Roger Reinert, DFL-Duluth, said. “We have cities with already overburdened systems trying to provide services to an expanding region, while funding sources continue to shrink. This is a situation that is common to these five cities. By getting together we can share ideas and best practices, help our communities to think strategically and form common legislative goals.”
