Legislative Update from Rep. Jeff Backer

Friday, April 26, 2019

Dear Neighbors,

It’s been another busy week in St. Paul with the House meeting around the clock debating and passing large omnibus finance bills.

Below is a brief video recapping both the health and human services and jobs/energy bills. I voted “no” on both bills because of the controversial policy provisions and tax increases included in both pieces of legislation.

You can watch the video by clicking here or by clicking on the photo below.


I will have more information for you next week as we continue work passing finance bills on Monday. Until then, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any legislative questions, concerns, or ideas. I can be reached on my office number at 651-296-4929 or my cell phone at 701-361-1909. You can also reach via email at, or via U.S. Mail at 203 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155.

Have a good weekend,
