Committee strengthens relations between state, provincial legislators

Created in 1991, the Midwestern Legislative Conference Midwest-Canada Relations Committee ensures that the perspective of state and provincial legislators is presented to federal officials. It does so through meetings with officials in Washington, D.C., and Ottawa as well as with policy resolutions, letters and public comments.
Another mission of this committee is to provide a cross-border forum for dialogue and information sharing. To that end, it organizes legislative exchanges between state and provincial legislators.
Legislators from 11 Midwestern states and four Canadian provinces serve on the committee.
If you have questions about the committee, please contact Ilene Grossman, CSG Midwest staff liaison to the committee.
The committee last met July 17, on the first day of the 2016 Midwestern Legislative Conference Annual Meeting; see the presentations below.

MLC Committees

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.
