Legislative Update (March 13, 2014)

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Dear neighbor,

On Tuesday, the Senate Environment and Energy Committee passed a bill that would suspend the wolf hunt. The legislation still has several more steps to go before it would reach the Senate floor. I’m skeptical such a proposal would pass the House, but given the fact that Democrat legislators from Minneapolis and St. Paul are in charge, anything is possible.

Last week I outlined my concerns regarding the so-called “Safe and Supportive Schools Act” that’s moving through the legislature. On Tuesday, the Senate Education Committee passed the bill after a five-hour hearing. Its next stop is the Senate Finance Committee. Since this particular bill is different from what passed the House in 2013, a conference committee will be needed if it passes the Senate and a version of the “Safe and Supportive Schools Act” will come back to the House. I continue to believe that any anti-bullying policies are best implemented at the local level.

I want to thank those who attended my town hall meetings a few weekends ago. I’m hoping to hold a couple more in areas I didn’t get to – like Frazee and Menahga – in the coming weeks depending on my legislative schedule.

With the legislature now in session, I can be reached via email at rep.steve.green@house.mn. To contact me by phone, call (651) 296-9918. Mail can be sent to Rep. Steve Green, 231 State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, Minnesota 55155.

 

Sincerely,

 

Steve
