Press Release

Rep. Peggy Flanagan Statement on Public Safety Vote


St. Paul, MN – As the Minnesota House of Representatives took up debate on the Public Safety Omnibus Bill (HF 896), State Representative Peggy Flanagan (DFL-St. Louis Park) issued a statement in opposition to the bill:

“While the public safety omnibus legislation contains several good pieces, Republicans unfortunately inserted some unacceptable language that would bring back private prisons to Minnesota and punish protesters who are exercising their First Amendment rights. I could not support the final legislation with those unnecessary provisions attached.”

Rep. Peggy Flanagan will vote against House File 896 later today.
