New Laws & Capitol Celebration

Thursday, July 13, 2017


I hope everyone had a fun and safe Independence Day. I had a great time celebrating the birth of our great country with friends, family, and neighbors across our area. I spent July 2nd in Bemidji with their festivities and on the 4th I participated in the parade in Debs and then headed off to an ice cream social in Bagley. Here are a couple fun pictures from a great day!

New Laws 

As mentioned previously, most new laws passed in 2017 went into effect on July 1st. You can view the complete list of new laws passed in 2017 can be viewed here: New Laws 2017. Among those that I am most proud of include the immediate work we did to provide health care premium relief to thousands of Minnesotans and our strong investment in education. 


Reminder: Capitol Grand Opening Celebration

After a $310 million restoration and four years of work, the Minnesota State Capitol is open to the public. To commemorate this special occasion and to invite Minnesotans back to the People’s House, there will be a Grand Opening Celebration held on August 11, 12, and 13. The celebration will have something for everyone – fireworks, concerts, demonstrations by the artisans that worked on the restoration, behind the scenes tours, and much more. Most of the events are free, or offered at a very low cost. Hopefully you can make it down to St. Paul to see the beautifully restored Capitol!
