Minneapolis Television Network
A Legacy Call
MTN is making some serious attempts at becoming a better organization for you. We currently have two bills that are still living in the Minnesota State Legislature. In the senate the number of our bill is 1299.
In the house the number is 1544. We are so grateful that Rep. Raymond Dehn is carrying the bill and Rep. Phyllis Kahn is the co-author. If you are in Rep. Dehn's or Rep. Kahn's district please give a call and let them know that you support MTN and the bill to procure a Minneapolis youth media education module, a citizen journalism module, and a location move that would help with what have been ongoing budget issues as well as create a place for both art and media to flourish for the city and thereby the state as a whole!
Rep. Dehn: 651-296-8659
Rep. Dehn legislative assistant, Lynn: 651-296-5356
As always, we thank you for your support!!
