The 2016 legislative session began at noon today. Shortly I'll send thoughts on the issues that are likely to arise this session, but first I wanted to make you aware of two chances for us to connect in the coming weeks.
‘Chat with Dave’
I will be holding office hours this coming Saturday. Stop by for informal conversations about the session and legislative priorities for you and your family.

When: 10:00 -11:00 am Saturday, March 12th, 2016

Box lunches and a beverage are available upon request from Cecil’s Deli at the cost of $10.50. Please order your lunch, indicating your sandwich preference (pastrami, corned beef, turkey, or veggie), by Thursday, March 17! Please bring a check payable to the Cohen Volunteer Committee on the day of the luncheon.
You’re also welcome to bring your own lunch if you choose. Please try to arrive early to allow time for parking and getting your lunch. Although parking will be at a premium during session, there are two and four hour parking meters on either side of the streets north, southwest, and southeast of the Capitol building. There is paid public parking available in Lot F, Lot Q and also metered public parking is available in surface Lot AA on the corner of University Ave. and Rice Street. A map of the parking facilities in the Capitol complex is attached.
To RSVP and order your lunch, please contact Josh Ney in Senator Cohen’s office at 651-296-5931 or Joshua.Ney@senate.mn. Please note that space is extremely limited; RSVP as soon as possible.
Hope to see you at one of these events, or certainly feel free to contact me via phone, email, or at my office at the Capitol.
Thank you for the honor of serving our community,
State Representative, District 64B
