First Week of Session

Thursday, January 10, 2019


On Tuesday, I joined my fellow legislators to take the oath of office in the House Chamber. I'm grateful to return to the legislature and continue serving the residents of Northern Minnesota. I'm looking forward to working with my colleagues to look for ways to reduce the costs of health care, improve our state's economy, and focus on the priorities of Minnesotans across the state.

This biennium, I will serve on the Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform Finance & Policy Division, Capital Investment Division, Judiciary Finance and Civil Law Division, and Veterans and Military Affairs Finance & Policy Division.

New Laws in Effect

In addition to the beginning of a new calendar year, January 1 brought our state some new laws. On January 1, 2019, a handful of laws passed during the 2018 legislative session went into effect. These new laws address various issues, including reinsurance organizations, identity theft, PTSD for public safety personnel, waste collection systems, MA reimbursement rates, and step therapy.
