Legislative Update- April 30, 2021

Friday, April 30, 2021



Dear Neighbors,

It has been a challenging and unsettling couple of weeks in Minnesota and in our Plymouth community. I hope you have been able to take a moment to care for yourself and to check in on others. These tumultuous times are stressful for all of us in many ways. As your state legislator, my commitment to lifting up Plymouth voices remains steadfast. Please know I’m available to help if you have questions or need assistance. I’m more resolved than ever to keep us on a positive path forward and bridge divides, so we can all thrive and be safe.

At the Legislature, we’re buttoning up budget bills and conference committees have begun to meet. These committees are comprised of five House members and five Senate members to reconcile differences within each major area of the budget; ie. Taxes, Education, Transportation, etc. I’m pleased to share I’ve been appointed to the Higher Education Conference Committee, and am looking forward to contributing my mediator skills to the process. So far, we’ve met twice. You can follow along and tune in to our public meetings here.

To date, the House has passed its full budget off the House Floor. Here’s a glimpse at those if you’re interested in learning more:

I’ve been working with Transportation Chair Hornstein and my colleagues to secure the inclusion of our bill to the final Transportation Budget that would fund a bus rapid transit analysis for Highway 55. In the Tax Bill there are two provisions important to Plymouth. Included are the Plymouth Fire Station Construction Tax Refund and the Lodging Tax Sunset provision.With less than three weeks left in the legislative session, and once again working under a divided state legislature, compromise will be key. I’ll have this in mind as we work to pass a balanced two-year budget.


All Budget Bills
