Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Says They Will Remain Neutral on Marriage Amendment


The Post Bulletin Political Notebook blog:

Looks like the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce is going to stay on the sidelines in the political fight over the marriage constitutional amendment — at least for now.

Bill Blazar, the chamber's senior vice president of public affairs and business development, told Rochester business leaders on Friday that the chamber doesn't plan to take a position on a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. The proposal will be on the ballot in 2012.

"The current thinking of the Minnesota chamber is not to take a position on that amendment, that we don't see it as a business issue," Blazar said.
