The MSBA’s Legislative Advocacy Program

The MSBA’s legislative agenda is developed through an interactive process that involves practice-area sections and standing committees. In anticipation of the 2016 Minnesota legislative session, MSBA members began legislative planning this month.

Committees and sections develop legislative proposals and take them to the Legislative Committee. The Legislative Committee vets the proposals and then makes recommendations to the MSBA Assembly. At its December meeting, the Assembly determines positions that will be taken in the name of the MSBA, as well as lobbying priorities.

Committee and section proposals must be submitted by October 28. For more information about the process and required form, visit or contact Government Relations and Membership Engagement Director Sherri Knuth at
