THIS WEEK IN THE LEGISLATURE
EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENTS PASSED HOUSE GOVERNMENT OPERATIONS COMMITTEE
I was proud to co-author and help pass two Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) bills as a member of the Government Operations Committee yesterday. One bill proposes a state constitutional amendment to allow Minnesotans the right to voice their opinion on the ERA. It passed our committee and was referred to the Ways and Means Committee. The second proposal is a resolution to the United States Congress to remove the deadline for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment to the United States Constitution by the states. It will now go to the House Floor.
You may find more information here.
Please join me next Thursday, January 31st from 5:30 - 8:00 PM at the Urban Research and Outreach Engagement Center, 2001 Plymouth Ave N, Minneapolis, MN 55411 for a town hall with Senator Bobby Joe Champion and Representative Raymond Dehn.
I encourage you to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns, or ideas on any legislative topic. Also, I am available during select hours on Monday and Friday mornings most weeks for in-district meetings, if Northside residents aren’t able to make it to the Capitol. If you would like to send me a message or set up an in-district meeting, you can reach me by phone at 651-296-4262 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
