ST. PAUL – Matt Bliss is once again Rep. Matt Bliss as the Pennington Republican was sworn into the Minnesota House of Representatives Tuesday at the Capitol. 

It is the second non-consecutive term for Bliss. He represents District 5A, encompassing portions of Beltrami, Cass, Hubbard and Itasca counties.  

“It feels great to be back in the House,” Bliss said. “I’m happy the session is underway and I look forward to serving District 5A once again, working to do my best in representing the people from this area.” 

Bliss has been selected to serve on three House committees for the upcoming biennium: Industrial Education and Economic Development Finance & Policy; Labor, Industry, Veterans and Military Affairs Finance & Policy; and Housing Finance & Policy.

“Industrial education is critically important because we need to focus more on skilled trades to fill a worker shortage and give our younger people job options that don’t necessarily involve attending a four-year program,” Bliss said. “And veterans always have been my top focus in the Legislature so I am pleased to be on that committee advocating for them.”
