STATEMENT: Rep. Masin responds to preemption bill passage

Preemption bill passes House


Saint Paul, Minn. – After the Minnesota House of Representatives passed a bill preventing cities from setting a higher minimum wage,  Rep. Sandra Masin, DFL-Eagan, released the following statement:


“The vote today strips local control away from our towns and cities around the state. Our communities are facing serious problems, so they should be able to vote to set a higher minimum wage or require benefits be provided by employers above state minimums. Local governments and the people they represent deserve the right to make decisions based on their values.


I am surprised and appalled at the Republican animosity towards local control in this bill and others being heard at the Capitol.”


Rep. Sandra Masin can be reached at the Capitol at 651-296-3533 or by email at rep.sandra.masin@house.mn.
