Special Session Could Be Called To Deal With Black Community Issues
St. Paul, MN (Minnesota News Network) -- Minnesota lawmakers could pass workforce development grants to train chronically unemployed minorities if a special legislative session is called.
Those lawmakers are joining community activists to discuss ways to help the minority community. Some have questioned if a one-day special session is enough to handle all of the issues. There is backing for a small business incubator program for minority entrepreneurs and financial incentives could be offered to businesses which hire minority employees.
Tension between police and protesters may mean criminal justice matters will have to wait until the 2016 Legislature meets at the Capitol.
