ST. PAUL, Minn. – Three freshman state senators participated in a panel discussion at a joint meeting of the Archer Doig and River Cities Chapters last week and fielded a variety of questions from the 125-person audience, ranging from credit unions, to raising taxes, to conceal-and-carry legislation. Participating in the panel were Sen. Dave Senjem (R-Rochester), Sen. Scott Dibble (D-Minneapolis), and Rep. Morrie Lanning (R-Moorhead). Sen. Senjem promised attendees that “credit unions are not going to get taxed on my watch. If I’m [serving in the legislature] for any reason, it’s for that.” Rep. Lanning and Sen. Dibble both talked about how they’re aware of the services CUs provide. Sen Dibble said one his goals is to be on the lookout for any legislation that pits Minnesotans against each. Other. The Archer Doig and River Cities Chapters contain 56% of the 183 credit unions in the state.
