In celebration of American Experiments 25th anniversary, the Center has published “25 Years: Looking Back and Aiming Forward,” 50-plus pages jammed with year-by-year highlights from our first quarter century. Released in early June at American Experiment’s 2015 Annual Dinner, it also discusses what’s coming up next and contains salutes from more than 30 Minnesota and national leaders.

As Minnesota’s legislators proceed through the final days of their 2015 session, Minnesotans appear to be surprisingly unified on issues related to the budget, transportation, health care, and state pensions, perhaps explained by a strong perception of the state’s improving economy. But there is a growing split between voters in the metro and non-metro regions.
The people of the Twin Cities have the right to govern their own communities. Social planning by unelected regional bureaucrats who use government power to tell us where to live and how to get around undermines democracy and is hostile to our cherished American traditions of freedom and self-government.
