PRESS RELEASE

Rep. Lohmer and House Republicans Convene Legislative Session with Initiatives to Reform Government, Promote Private Sector Job Growth


St. Paul – State Representative Kathy Lohmer (R-Lake Elmo) and fellow Republican representatives today convened the 2012 legislative session with a slate of initiatives designed to restore economic confidence, grow the private sector, reform education and health care, and reduce the size and cost of government.

“My colleagues and I are entering the new year with a projected $876 million surplus and an intensified commitment to ensuring the state’s economic climate revives and thrives,” Lohmer explained. “Now, more than ever, is the time to focus on reform that promotes economic freedom and prioritizes future budget stability and growth in the private economy.”

As an author of several reform measures, Lohmer seeks to institute structural change in government that not only saves taxpayers money, but also promotes efficiency, accessibility, and a better delivery of services.

“The Legislature will soon consider my legislation, House File 1766, a child care subsidy bill that prohibits the deduction of union dues from child care assistance payments,” Lohmer stated. “In addition, I have been working on issues related to disability housing, specifically for those with severe autism. I am committed to providing the best care at the best value for those who are the most vulnerable.

“When we reform government, provide more efficient and accessible services, and promote the free market economy, we increase the overall quality of life for Minnesotans,” Lohmer added.
