Legislative Update

Friday, February 11, 2022

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

We have wrapped up our second week of the legislative session and I am so glad to be your representative!

This year, I have co-authored several pieces of legislation including HF3023. This would allow for gun permits to last a lifetime. I am a staunch supporter of our Second Amendment and I believe that a person’s rights as guaranteed by the Constitution should be some of the least burdensome. HF3023 would also reduce the fees imposed on you when you try and get a carry permit.

I am proud to co-author HF2458. This legislation allows blind parents the ability to adopt children. Visual impairment is not an impairment of the heart and I believe children in need of adoption deserve a loving home.

I am just getting started this session and I greatly appreciate your support as we work to make Minnesota the best place to live, work and raise a family. Do not hesitate to reach out if you need anything from me. I am always happy and available to listen to constituents.
