Committee fosters dialogue among leaders in economic policy
The Midwestern Legislative Conference Economic Development Committee provides a forum for legislators to examine strategies for economic growth in individual states and the region as a whole. Legislators from the 11 member states of the MLC and four Canadian provinces serve on the committee, which is led by two co-chairs, Michigan Sen. Ken Horn and Nebraska Sen. Heath Mello, and a vice chair, Illinois Rep. Elgie Sims.
The bipartisan MLC committees are made up of state and provincial legislators from across the Midwest. They foster the regional exchange of information and ideas on key policy issues impacting the region and its states. They also facilitate interstate cooperation.
