The purpose of the Legislative Committee is to advise the Statewide Emergency Communications Board on all matters related to legislation and government affairs that have the potential to impact the board, its members and users of the public safety communications systems across Minnesota.

The Legislative Committee meets on the first Thursday of each month at 10:00am. Meeting materials must be submitted to the Board's coordinator no later than 10 days prior to the meeting.

Minutes will be posted when they approved by the board. Minutes are reviewed during the meeting immediately following any meeting of the board for which minutes are taken; e.g., minutes taken for the May meeting will be posted in June, and minutes taken for the June meeting will be posted in July.
