Legislative Update from Representative Nels Pierson

Friday, March 11, 2022


This week, please join me in praying for the people of Ukraine. What is happening there is one that is hard for us as Americans to imagine. Pray for the innocent people and pray for our world leaders. Pray that they come to a solution quickly.

We had a packed week in the legislature. The Unemployment Insurance Fund is being held up by House Democrats. We had a press conference this week with local Minnesota business leaders practically begging the Democrats to bring this bill to the floor for a vote. Sadly, nothing is happening as of the time of this writing. It is truly a shame that so many of our businesses will continue to struggle after what they had to endure during the pandemic.

I filed legislation this week that will hopefully help you at the DMV. I know that when I have to go renew my license, it is a headache to gather all the appropriate forms and documentation. With my bill, the DMV will have to accept digital copies of these documents. I think that will help drastically if you forget a form, or only have it in an email. I hope it will help you too.
