St. Paul – State Representative Jenifer Loon (R-Eden Prairie) began her first term in the Minnesota House of Representatives this week when the 86th Legislature convened. Loon will represent Eden Prairie in St. Paul.

“I am honored with the privilege of serving my community in the Minnesota House,” Loon said. “The opportunity to serve in the legislature is one that I take very seriously, and I am committed to working in a civil manner for sensible solutions in our state government. I will serve this job to the best of my abilities and with the respect that the office deserves. I am greatly looking forward to the opportunity to work on the issues that matter to our community and our state.”

Rep. Loon brings 16 years of business and legislative policy experience with her to St. Paul. As the former Chief of Staff for the Committee on Small Business in the U.S. House of Representatives, Loon orchestrated the Committee's work to adopt an agenda dedicated to reducing onerous tax, regulatory and paperwork burdens on small businesses.
