School House Rock taught us how a bill goes from sitting on the Capitol steps to being signed into law. Join us to learn how a bill actually becomes a law in Minnesota. This webinar will be an opportunity to learn about the legislative process, gain insights on the twists and turns of that process in a political climate, and where and how a nonprofit organization can participate in the law-making process. Participants will gain some tools which will help nonprofits effectively engage and navigate the legislative process and learn the process of how ideas, bills, and policy becomes law.
