(p.1) Chapter 1 Forming a More Perfect Union
Minnesota's Miracle

Tom Berg

University of Minnesota Press

In the 1960s and early 1970s, the Minnesota Legislature was officially nonpartisan and did not implement the standard party labels of Democrats and Republicans to its members; it was eventually amended in 1973 as Minnesota decisively adopted party designation. This chapter reviews the prescribed role of the state government under America’s federal system as a way of understanding the impacts of the changes in the legislative process during the 1970s. It examines how federal and state courts influenced the operations of the federal system, as well as the social and cultural changes in America during 1960–1970 in relation to the significance of individual leadership.
