Today’s discussion covers a Civic Caucus meeting with Tom Gillaspy, Minnesota state demographer.
“The state needs structural reform, Gillaspy argues, in order to adjust to structural deficits that persist under the present framework. Even as we work our way out of the recession, Minnesota will continue to lose its capacity to provide services at present levels. He argues that Minnesota leaders should first develop a common vision for the state’s future, a common understanding of our goals which lawmakers and the governor could then use in assessing proposed strategies for reform.”
