Rep. Swedzinski: 2022 legislative session starts in St. Paul

Monday, January 31, 2022


ST. PAUL – Minnesota’s 2022 legislative session began Monday and Rep. Chris Swedzinski, R-Ghent, said tax relief and improved public safety are at the forefront this year.

“The best thing about the session starting is we finally can get to work turning the state’s $7.7 billion surplus into historic tax relief and cracking down on violent crime that is soaring in our state,” Swedzinski said. “Those should be our main focuses this session and deserve our full attention. Our state has more than enough revenue, but people and businesses have been suffering under inflation and unilateral restrictions the governor placed upon them. Minnesotans deserve tax relief and now’s our chance to show them we have their backs. We also need to improve public safety in our state this session in response to the rampant violent crime we are experiencing.”

Swedzinski said he welcomes correspondence throughout the session and encourages District 16A residents to call (651) 296-5374 or email to get in touch.
