Share story

Over the past two weeks, we've been talking on the show with some of Minnesota's new commissioners about their plans and hopes for the state. 

MPR's economics contributor Chris Farrell spoke with four newly-appointed members of the Walz administration about issues affecting the business community and the state's workforce. The four state commissioners gathered last week at a panel hosted by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce.


• Steve Kelly — Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Commerce

• Margaret Anderson Kelliher — Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Transportation

• Nancy Leppink — Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry

• Steve Grove — Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED)
