The Midwestern Legislative Conference Economic Development Committee provides a forum for Midwestern legislators to examine issues affecting the economic conditions of individual states within the Midwest and the region as a whole. It includes legislators from the 11 member states of the MLC and four Canadian provinces. A 2015-2016 committee roster will be posted soon.
Since its creation in 1996, the committee has studied a number of issues impacting the economic health of the Midwestern states, including tax and financial incentives, technology-led economic development, venture capital, workforce development and regional growth strategies.
If you have questions about the committee and its meetings, please contact Laura Tomaka, CSG Midwest staff liaison to the committee.
