Good news!

The Minnesota chapter of Common Ground USA has successfully hit its fundraising goal to advocate for the Land Value Tax Districts bill at the MN legislature.

Thanks to everyone who donated to the campaign and spread the word!

The chapter has made progress with the bill by having co-authors include bi-partisan legislators from urban, suburban and rural communities. 

But as an all-volunteer group that can lobby only over lunch hours and after work, it has not had the legislative presence needed to get a hearing for the bill.

The chapter is hopeful that the experience and relationships that Almeida Public Affairs has at the MN legislature (one of their lobbyists was recently the administrator for the House taxes committee) will at least result in a hearing and advancement for the bill. 

The chapter will be providing updates as the advocacy effort proceeds.

Thank you again for your help.
