What Deals and Trade-Offs Should Conservatives Seek
When Compromising Next Time?

Minnesota State Capitol
Admission is free, but registration is requested, as seating is limited.
Since food and drink are frowned upon in Capitol hearing rooms, we’re sorry, but neither will be available.
Starting from the reality-grounded premise that compromise is a necessary and honorable fact of political life – especially when different parties control different branches of government – what deals ought Minnesota conservatives seek in future legislative sessions?
Might there be ways, for example, for conservatives to achieve some of their key goals regarding taxes, education, energy, pensions, and the environment by reaching imaginative, win-win understandings with liberals? What might such possible trade-offs look like? (“Deals” and “trade-offs,” by the way, are also seen here as necessary and honorable.)
With American Experiment Senior Fellow Peter Bell moderating, panelist will include
