‘Unsession’ part of economic fairness agenda

Today the Dayton administration unveiled its “unsession” agenda for 2014. This initiative will make government work better and faster for millions of Minnesotans. It will make their lives easier with everything from doing their taxes to speeding up the permitting process for small businesses to making government more accessible to citizens. It also proposes eliminating 1,000 unnecessary laws and statutes.

The upshot is that every day Minnesotans will save money and be able to more easily navigate state government.

“Governor Dayton’s ‘unsession’ is more than just an exercise in efficiency,” said Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) Chairman Ken Martin. “It is recognition that government should be and can be a place where everyone has the same access to the same service. It should be a place where it’s simple to get your best return and every small business can expect prompt permitting.”

In addition to the “unsession” Governor Dayton’s 2014 session priorities, including raising the minimum wage and a healthy bonding bill that will create thousands of jobs, will continue to strengthen the middle class and build on last year’s achievements
