Legislative Update- March 19, 2020

Thursday, March 19, 2020

Rep. Klevorn


Dear Neighbors,

Late Monday night, the Minnesota House of Representatives unanimously passed emergency COVID-19 health care funding, which provides $200 million in investments for a health care response fund and Minnesota’s public health response contingency account. This will help ensure hospitals, clinics, and other health care facilities prepare for and respond to an outbreak of COVID-19. We’re working as quickly and thoughtfully as we can to prepare our health care community for the challenges ahead and are committed to ensuring Minnesotans can get the care they need.

Although we are not physically at the Capitol, I want to reassure you that I’m still working for our Plymouth residents at the state level. Minnesotans can have confidence that their state government stands ready to address this issue.

??Calling all Childcare Providers??

Our first responders and health care workers are facing childcare shortages as they continue to work around the clock during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you are a licensed childcare provider and have space to help, please fill out this secured online survey form. The name and contact information for your program will be made available to families seeking care. They will be able to contact you directly to make further arrangements.


AARP Tele-Town Hall Meetings

AARP will host a weekly live Coronavirus Information Tele-Town Hall on Thursdays at 12 p.m. (CST) to help answer questions related to COVID-19. Government officials will also be available to answer your questions about avoiding coronavirus scams and providing resources for family caregivers. Call toll-free 855-274-9507 to join the live event.


Please don’t hesitate to contact me anytime with questions, ideas, or to let me know how I can be of assistance. I can be reached at 651-296-5511 or by email at


Stay well,

Ginny Klevorn

State Representative
