The financial services sector in Minnesota is an impressive part of our business community and key industry throughout our state. In Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District alone we have 146 banks and 8 credit unions with nearly 60,000 of Minnseotans in this district employed in finance related fields. On top of those who work directly with the financial industry in Minnesota, there are thousands of additional constituents in my district who are employed by one of Minnesota’s 18 Fortune 500 companies. These companies rely heavily on the financial industry for capital formation and insurance.
