Date: Wednesday, November 20, 2013 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Venue: Ramsey County Room / Landmark Center  Saint Paul, MN United States  Get Directions
Total Price: $15.00


Join rulemaking experts, Patricia Winget, Dan Lipschultz, and Greg Merz, for a presentation and panel discussion on rulemaking in Minnesota.  Rulemaking is a major undertaking for any state agency.  This topic is particularly relevant for the Public Utilities Law Section given the recent rulemaking dockets opened by the Public Utilities Commission.

Patricia Winget, editor of the Minnesota Rulemaking Manual: A Reference Book for the Practitioner, is an attorney serving as Rules Coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Health.  She will present an overview of the Minnesota rulemaking process, including procedures, legal issues, and standard of review.  As public utility lawyers, Dan Lipschultz and Gerg Merz, will provide perspective on rulemaking as it relates to the Public Utilities Commission.

Dan Lipschultz is a shareholder with Moss and Barnett.  He has over 20 years of experience representing or practicing before the Public Utilities Commission, including a number of past Commission rulemakings.

Gerg Merz is a principal with Gray Plant Mooty.  He practices in the areas of commercial litigation and administrative law, representing clients in rulemakings, contested case proceedings, investigations, and enforcement actions before governmental agencies, including the Minnesota Public Utilities Commission, the Department of Human Services, the Department of Health, and the Board of Medical Practice.

Please join us for lunch beginning at Noon, followed by the program from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.

Box lunch will be provided.  Special meal requests need to be received no later than Friday, November 15.
