July special session update

Thursday, July 16, 2020

Rep. Richardson

Dear Neighbors,

I hope you and your family are staying safe and healthy. 

Today is the final day that legislators are permitted to send emails like this to constituents, but my office can continue to answer your questions and share resources on an as-needed basis. 

Here’s how you can stay in touch:

Phone - 651-296-4192
Postal mail - 403 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155

The Legislature is currently meeting in a second special session, with the latest developments set to be announced Monday, July 20. I remain hopeful that the House and Senate can reach an agreement that serves the people of Minnesota during these challenging and uncertain times. 

Passing police accountability, investing in jobs and local projects, and addressing the COVID-19 pandemic are priorities that Minnesotans of all backgrounds share. This Legislature achieves bipartisan compromise more often than not. There’s no reason we can’t deliver for Minnesotans again during this second special session.

It is an honor to represent you and your family and our community at our State Capitol. Minnesotans care about each other, and we want to see one another succeed. Thank you for everything you are doing to care for your neighbors and protect vulnerable people from COVID-19.



Rep. Ruth Richardson
