Purple Caucus Is Spreading At Minnesota Capitol

by

ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - This week, 14 Minnesota State Senators attended the 2nd meeting of the "Purple Caucus", four more than were at the first meeting before the mid-session break.  Founder and co-chair of the Caucus, Duluth's Roger Reinert, says the group is growing and filling a need at the State Capitol.  The Purple Caucus is designed to allow senators from both parties to discuss issues that would be good for Minnesota without being boxed in by party politics.  Reinert says many of the legislators attending the caucus share backgrounds in non partisan local governments such as city councils, school and county boards.
