RE: Governor hosting meeting with DFL Legislative Leaders tomorrow morning
Governor Pawlenty has invited DFL legislative leaders to meet with him for breakfast tomorrow morning at the Governor’s Residence to touch base in advance of the 2010 legislative session.
Senate Majority Leader Larry Pogemiller, Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher, Assistant Senate Majority Leader Tarryl Clark, and House Majority Leader Tony Sertich are planning to attend. Minnesota Management & Budget Commissioner Tom Hanson and the Governor’s Director of Legislative and Cabinet Affairs Chris DeLaForest will also be at the meeting.

This will be the first time Pawlenty and DFL legislative leaders will meet since May 18th. That was the last day of the 2009 legislative session.
