A bipartisan House Jobs Task Force is meeting today to discuss ways to promote job creation during the 2010 legislative session. The group will focus primarily on economic development, capital investments and tax policies.
House Majority Leader Tony Sertich, DFL-Chisolm, told MPR:
“We’re hopeful that some initiatives will be produced within this that will grow our economy, that will unfreeze our markets, that will move Minnesota forward with job creation. It’s too soon to say what those ideas will be right now, but certainly we’ll have a significant amount of the Legislature involved in this task force, which will bring them up to speed so we can hit the ground running on the first day of session.”
The group will meet again in October and November, with hopes of having a plan before the session begins Feb. 4.
