Gov. Dayton has busy day with ceremonial duties

There’s more to the governor’s job during the session than signing some bills, vetoing others  and berating stadium opponents.

Today, Gov. Mark Dayton has a schedule full of official greetings and appearances, in addition to a slate of meetings with legislators and officials.

On the governor’s agenda are welcoming remarks for:

  • The African Development Center Business Breakfast Roundtable in Minneapolis. He will be joined at this event by Minnesota Housing Finance Agency Commissioner Mary Tingerthal.
  • The Multiple Sclerosis Rally at the Minnesota State Capitol. He will receive the National Multiple Sclerosis Governor of the Year Award at this event.
  •  The Hibbing Chamber Leadership Class Annual Day on the Hill in the Governor’s Reception Room.
  •  Disabilities Day on the Hill in the Minnesota State Capitol Rotunda.

In addition, there are closed meetings with:

  •  The St. Paul Legislative Delegation.
  • State Sen. Patricia Torres Ray of Minneapolis and Rep. Carlos Mariani of St. Paul.
  • Commerce Commissioner Mike Rothman and Deputy Commissioner Bill Grant.
