Minnesota’s Equity Proposals – Less than 1 percent of ALANA Assets?


Is Minnesota’s Equity Math Going South? It is also not just about money!

ALANA economic assets
(Income, Business, residential real estate) estimated at over $30 billion

Current legislative proposals are small investments relative to ALANA economic assets – so how will these assets grow?

Governor – proposed investment: 0.33 percent of of ALANA assets or around $100 million

Senate – proposed investment: 0.3 percent of ALANA assets or around $ 91 million

House – proposed investment: 0.03 percent of ALANA assets or about $ 10 million

It is not just about money. We need policy consensus and long term strategies that include all ALANA communities and will operate with cultural intelligence, coordination and accountability.  Minnesota’s future economic success is at stake.

We also welcome top legislative leaders being willing to meet with citizens to discuss these issues and for committee meetings and documents posted in a timely manner to allow better citizen participation.
