New Laws Begin July 1

Friday, June 28, 2019
Dear Neighbors,
 
I hope this finds you well! As June comes to a close, I wanted to share with you the new laws that go into effect July 1. Our nonpartisan House Public Information office has put together a comprehensive press release outlining these new laws. You can find a list with more detail of each law here. I’m grateful our investments in Minnesota’s public schools will be secured, our workers will be protected under the strongest wage theft law in the nation, and Big Pharma will be held accountable for their role in the opioid crisis with the newly required manufacturer fees to help with addiction, prevention, and treatment.
 

Bloomington Summer Fete

On July 3, Bloomington will host its annual Independence Day celebration. This is always a fun tradition my family and I look forward to every year. Festivities will be held at the Normandale Lake Bandshell and begin at 5:00 p.m. There’s a wide variety of family-friendly activities, music, food vendors, and fireworks. You can see the schedule of events here. I hope to see you there!
 

Keep in Touch

Although the Legislature stands in recess until February, I hope you’ll continue to reach out with ideas, feedback, and questions. I always appreciate hearing from you.
 
Please don’t hesitate to let me know how I can be of assistance.
 
Have a cool and safe Fourth of July!
 
Sincerely,
Andrew Carlson
State Representative
