Select Committee on Racial Justice Final Report

This month, in honor of Black History Month, I want to invite you to read the final report released on Racial Justice.

Over the interim, the House Committee on Racial Justice examined how racism pervades Minnesota’s laws and institutions. This committee wrote a report of their findings to guide House members and me as we write bills.

A Unified Statement in Defense of Our Democracy

In addition to taking measures to reform free and fair elections, the Minnesota House of Representative joined together and passed House Resolution 1, a resolution condemning violence and violent rhetoric directed at the United States Capitol and state capitols, and affirming support for democracy, rule of law, and the certified results of our election. The resolution passed on a vote of 111-8.

Now is the time to stand up to rhetoric that threatens the stability of our democracy and casts baseless doubt on the legitimacy of our free and fair elections. 

Sober Homes And Consumer Protections

I had my first bill hearing this morning in the Behavioral Health Policy Committee to conduct a study of Sober Homes and add consumer protections. The bill is co-authered by Rep. Koegal and Rep. Hassan. 

You can watch the full-clip of the Behavioral Health Policy Committee hearing here.
