We are in the final stretch of the legislative session, with less than a month to go. As budget negotiations continue, I will keep you updated on the priorities for our community.
Here is an update from the Capitol:

WHITE BEAR LAKE AUGMENTATION
White Bear Lake is one of the east metro's greatest assets, and we need to do everything we can to protect it. But as we know, the water level on the lake continues to be a problem.
I've been pleased to see that local community efforts to conserve water are already starting to pay off, and I'd like to build on that success as your legislator.
One concrete way I can do that is to make it easier to reuse storm water. Thankfully, my bill to do just that made it into the omnibus Environment budget bill, so there is a good chance it will pass by the end of session. As always, I will keep you updated.
