MR. PUMERLO SAID THE MINNESOTA CHAMBER IS ADVANCING THE ISSUE OF REDUCING THE STATEWIDE BUSINESS PROPERTY TAX WHICH AFFECTS ALL BUSINESSSES PARTICULARY TARGETING THE INFLATION INDEX ACCELERATOR WHICH KICKS IN WITHOUT LEGISLATIVE ACTION.

FAIRMONT AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE PRESIDENT MARGARET DILLARD AGREES THAT THE CURRENT TAX ENVIRONMENT IN THE STATE IS A DETRIMENT TO BUSINESS IN THIS PART OF THE STATE WITH CLOSE PROXIMITY TO BORDERING STATE THAT TAX BUSINESSES LESS.

ANOTHER TOPIC FOR THURSDAY'S DISCUSSION WAS PASSING A UNIFORM STATE LABOR STANDARDS ACT TO EXPLICITLY PREEMPT LOCAL GOVERNMENTS FROM ENACTING THEIR OWN WAGE AND BENEFIT MANDATES ON PRIVATE EMPLOYERS WHICH CREATES A HODGEPODGE OF ORDINANCES AND AN ADMINISTRATIVE NIGHTMARE FOR BUSINESS.
