Electric cooperatives were created with politics during the New Deal, and we recognize the value political involvement brings our members.

There are few legislative matters that do not impact, in some manner, the electric cooperatives of Minnesota. Whether on the state or national level, it is imperative that these activities be monitored and acted upon. By coming together and addressing legislative issues with a unified voice, electric cooperatives continue to help shape and foster positive rural legislation.

betc365手机客户端首页’s government affairs department advocates on behalf of its member cooperatives in legislative, regulatory, and other public policy forums at every level. This advocacy is conducted through direct lobbying of elected officials, through testimony in legislative and regulatory hearings, and through informational presentations to co-op directors, employees, and members, to better equip them to pursue their own advocacy efforts. The department also organizes grassroots advocacy efforts and oversees a political action committee, the Rural Electric Political Action Committee (REPAC), coordinating the contribution of funds to candidates who support the interests and goals of electric cooperatives. Contributions to REPAC are for political purposes and are voluntary.
