Neighbors,

The Legislature returned from Easter/Passover break to continue work on the two-year budget. On Monday, House DFL legislative leaders unveiled key budget bills which include significant ongoing investments in education and prioritizes economic assistance to those most impacted by COVID-19. The legislation asks big corporations and the wealthiest to pay their fair share to contribute to these needed investments to help those most impacted by the pandemic. 

As we craft a budget that works for everyone, I look forward to listening to your priorities to help all Minnesotans make it through the pandemic and thrive in the future.

You are invited to join Sen. Eken, Rep. Marquart and me for our District 4 virtual town hall on Sunday, April 11. You can participate by going to my Facebook page.
