When the House and Senate pass different versions of the same bill, those bills are sent into conference committee where a new single version of the bill is created. It is vital to contact legislators who will often be heard in conference committee or on the floor saying whether or not they were contacted about the bill.
We are small but we have a big impact! Remind legislators that Minnesota small businesses hire more Minnesotans that all of the Fortune 500s combined. Minnesota’s 500,000 small businesses employ 52 percent of our private-sector workforce and contribute more than 50 percent of the GDP.
