2018 Legislative Session Underway: What We’re Fighting For

Minnesota’s 2018 legislative session officially kicked off on February 20. Being active at the State Capitol is a high priority for us at TLC-Smart Trips. It’s a key time to unite around a shared vision for the future—and to push for change to make it happen.

Community Engagement Influences New Vision for Capitol-Rice District

Picture this. You’re at the bustling intersection of Rice Street and University Ave. A streetcar whizzes by, people pop on and off, visiting the local businesses conveniently located only a block away from the State Capitol building. Shift over to now. On the same corner you’ll find the Green Line Capitol Rice Street Station. The State Capitol still stands prominently in the background. Yet, except for the League of MN Cities building, you will find a vastly different landscape, primarily made up of surface parking lots.
