Weber receives Legislator of Distinction Award
State Sen. Bill Weber was recognized by the Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities (CGMC) Aug. 3 during the Coalition’s three-day summer conference in Fergus Falls for his positive impact on the state’s tax policy.
Sen. Weber, a Republican from Luverne, is serving his second term in the Minnesota Senate. The award is given to legislators who helped advance CGMC’s policy during the preceding session.
For example, Weber authored legislation to increase Local Government Aid (LGA) back to its 2002 benchmark — $15 million to help cities pay for essential services.
CGMC is a nonprofit, nonpartisan advocacy organization representing 90 cities outside of the Twin Cities metropolitan area. The Coalition educates legislators about issues important to Greater Minnesota.
