DULUTH, MN, March 12 – The Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with St. Louis County, the City of Duluth and several other key stakeholders to bring a voice to the Northland. The 21st Annual Duluth & St. Louis County at the Capitol Days events will be tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13th and Wednesday, March 14th in St. Paul.

Duluth and St. Louis County at the Capitol Days is the biggest regional public policy initiative. Over 500 area citizens from Northeastern Minnesota will attend the two-day event in St. Paul. Throughout the day, Tuesday, March 13th, Duluthians and Northeastern Minnesotans will meet face-to-face with legislators throughout Minnesota. The same evening, legislators and their staff will join us at an informal reception designed to promote interaction. This is our opportunity to have lawmakers at the Capitol learn more about our region's legislative initiatives.

The following morning the Legislative Breakfast will conclude the events. There we will learn what is unfolding within the Minnesota Senate and House of Representatives. Find out directly for the legislative decision makers how Duluth and St. Louis County are faring within this legislative session. Governor Mark Dayton has been invited to participate in the breakfast.
