The Legislature is Back in Session

Wednesday, February 12, 2020

Rep. Christensen

Dear Neighbors,

The legislature returns to St. Paul this week to continue our work building a stronger state by ensuring every Minnesotan has access to affordable, high-quality health care, a world-class education, and the opportunity to succeed. Returning to the Capitol for the first day of session is a great reminder of the privilege it is to serve our district as your state legislator. 

Here's a good rundown of the major issues this session from the Star Tribune.


Some of our priorities this session will be to deliver investments in communities across the state through local jobs and infrastructure projects by putting together a "Bonding Bill," to improve our clean energy economy and protect our natural resources, and to provide paid family and medical leave and earned sick and safe time so that Minnesotans can take time to care for a new baby, or take time for themselves or close family when they get sick.

If you want to follow along with our work this session, the nonpartisan House Public Information Services office is a great resource for staying updated on committee schedules, the status of bills you may be interested in, and watching live coverage of Floor Sessions or committee hearings. You can ‘like’ or ‘follow’ their Facebook and Twitter pages for real-time updates. You can also follow my official Facebook page for occasional updates. 

As always, feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you have! You can reach me at or (651) 296-4244. It’s an honor to represent our community.
