So last Wednesday, the entire State Legislature attended a “Policy Conference” at the U of M.
Check out the notice. It’s “closed to the public”.
Inquiries to the U’s public relations contact were – is this surprising to anyone? – not returned.
This follows close on the heels of an event in September at the U with Governor Dayton; Dayton’s performance appeared addled – but the U of M didn’t videotape the speech (citing “expense”), and the media in attendance embargoed their own video of Dayton’s performance.
I’m not as clear on open meeting laws as I should be, but I have to wonder: has the U become a handy place for the DFL to skirt open meeting laws?
