Our democracy is awash in money. Minnesota has a history as a national leader in fending off big money in election campaigns but is now threatened by large infusions of cash out of the sight of voters. As the Minnesota Legislature convenes in 2014, reformers are making a determined effort to update state law to shine the bright light of public disclosure on campaign money. An extraordinary forum will bring together Speaker of the House Paul Thissen, House Majority Leader Erin Murphy, key lawmakers from both parties, and Trevor Potter - a national expert on campaign finance, former lawyer for the John McCain and George H.W. Bush presidential campaigns, and a Colbert Report regular. This conference has been approved for 3 CLE credits in Minnesota.
