Vance Stuehrenberg, Blue Earth County District 2 Commissioner, was elected Chair of the Transportation and Infrastructure Policy Committee (TIPC) through the Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC). Commissioner Stuehrenberg was elected on Monday, December 3 during the AMC Annual Conference and will serve for 2019 and 2020.
TIPC has primary jurisdiction over transportation, infrastructure, bonding and broadband. The committee examines, discusses and drafts AMC legislative policies for approval by the full association and recommends policy positions to general membership and the board of directors for inclusion in AMC’s policy platform. Commissioner Stuehrenberg has served as the Vice Chair of TIPC for the past two years. He will now serve alongside new Vice Chair Gordy Wagner of Pope County.
AMC is a voluntary, non-partisan statewide organization that has assisted the state’s 87 counties in providing effective county governance to the people of Minnesota since 1909. The association works closely with the legislative and administrative branches of government in seeing that legislation and policies favorable to counties are enacted.
