According to the ‘Minnesota Daily’, State Representative Phyllis Kahn (Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, Minneapolis), unveiled a bill she plans to introduce for the 2014 legislative session to make the endangered Minnesota Orchestra a community-owned entity in which any individual or group could buy stock. Sen. Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, will author the Senate version of the bill, Kahn said. She also underlined that her plan hasn’t been discussed with orchestra management. The measure proposes ‘broad-based local ownership’ of the orchestra, similar to when a private company transitions to public ownership and sells its first stocks.
