Minnesota Report

We would like to note as the legislative session opens, Minnesota’s first digital political magazine, Checks & Balances enters its 34 legislative session and is experiencing its 35th year of existence. Our site is the location of the first paid political advertisement and it was written about in Wired Magazine September 26, 1997 in the following article.This Mondale Comes in First.

We have led in many ways, will scoops of the traditional press, before Twitter, and providing angles on legislation others rarely consider. As a publication with vision, Checks & Balances is only as old as it’s recorded but is always recording the history of political event and occurrences.
