This week we are continuing our work on conference committees in an effort to provide a fully balanced budget to Governor Dayton. As one of only a few legislators on the Health and Human Services conference committee, it is a privilege to come together to bring fundamental reform and reduce wasteful spending while protecting the most vulnerable in our community.
Despite Governor Daytonís misguided belief that raising taxes will solve the budget deficit, I know that through lower taxes and a strong business environment, Minnesota can lead the nation in this economic recovery. Throughout the rest of this legislative session, I am committed to doing everything in my power to bring tax relief to Minnesota families. Sustainable government comes from a government that lives within its means.
I am pleased to announce that photo identification in regards to voting in Minnesota continues to move through both the House and Senate. House File 210 calls for requiring voter picture identification before receiving a ballot, and provides identification cards at no charge to those who do not already have state approved photo identification. The integrity of our elections is a cornerstone of our democratic process. The Senate took up this bill on Thursday, April 28th and the House, the bill is being heard in the House Civil Law committee.
If you would like to discuss legislative issues and are available to visit me at the Capitol, please contact Melissa Hackenmueller at 651-296-9471 to schedule an appointment. I always enjoy hearing from my community.
