Join Us At Our Town Hall
On Saturday, February 22nd, from 9:30-11am I will host a town hall along with Representative Freiberg and Senator Rest to touch base with you and discuss the 2020 session. This event is free and open to the public. I hope you can make it.
Start of Session
Legislators have returned to St. Paul for the 2020 legislative session. It’s a new year, but Minnesotans’ values and the values that guide my work at the Capitol haven’t changed. We know that Minnesotans care about each other and want to see one another succeed.
Whether it’s world-class schools, affordable health care, gun violence prevention, local jobs projects, Paid Family & Medical Leave, or Earned Sick & Safe Time, these are priorities for all Minnesotans -- no matter where you live or what you look like.
If you have a personal story, idea, or question related to business at the State Capitol, please get in touch. You can find my full contact information online at www.house.mn/45A If you have a friend, neighbor, or relative who wants to receive updates about the Legislature, let them know they can subscribe to my email list here.
2020 Minnesota Values Plan: Build a state that works better for everyone
I am committed to building a better future for all Minnesotans. The Legislaturemade valuable bipartisan progress last year, and we look forward to reaching meaningful agreements with our Senators on the issues most important to Minnesotans. House DFLers believe that all Minnesotans deserve a world-class education, affordable health care, economic security, and safe and inclusive communities. We will continue our efforts to make this better future a reality for all Minnesotans.
Our 2020 Minnesota Values Plan includes the following priorities:
World-class schools — House DFLers believe every child in Minnesota deserves a great start, and are working to close the opportunity gap and invest in early care and learning.
Affordable, accessible health care — House DFLers are working to pass long-overdue legislation to provide affordable insulin and reduce the price of prescription drugs.
Economic security — House DFLers are working to provide paid family and medical leave and earned safe and sick time to all Minnesotans.
Safe and inclusive communities — House DFLers are working to enact common-sense gun violence prevention legislation including criminal background checks on all gun sales and extreme risk protection orders. We are working to deliver investments in communities across the state through local jobs & projects. And the House DFL will continue to advocate for bold action on climate, including a 100% clean energy standard.
House DFLers led the way last year with a bold, progressive agenda that sets a marker for the future. Last year’s budget was just a first step on a much longer road to a better state. We will continue working to advance an ambitious agenda that will improve the lives of all Minnesotans.
