New Laws Begin Tomorrow

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Rep. Bierman

Dear Neighbors,

Yesterday, Governor Walz announced that the state has completed more than half a million COVID-19 tests and has the capacity to test 20,000 Minnesotans each day. This was not to take a ‘victory lap’, but rather to highlight a significant milestone and an important step towards keeping all Minnesotans safe and healthy. If you are feeling sick, or showing any signs of COVID-19, please get tested. To find a testing location near you, click here.





New Laws Begin Tomorrow

As a new month approaches, several new laws go into effect on the first of the July, including the Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act and the Prescription Drug Price Transparency Act. Finding ways to make prescription drugs more affordable and accessible has been and continues to be a top priority for me as your state representative. While I’m glad we made some progress with these bills, they really are only the beginning of the work needed to ensure Minnesotans can afford the medications they need.

AARP Survey

The AARP community survey seeks to inform the work of the Governor’s Council on an Age Friendly Minnesota, which is working to drive coordinated action across state agencies and move Minnesota toward being a more livable, age friendly state. The full survey can be taken by individual Minnesota residents, age 45+ through July 3, 2020.

Save the Date for our Next Coffee Hour

A big thank you to everyone who attended our most recent virtual coffee hour. We had another great turnout, and lots of good questions and input. With the Fourth of July falling on a Saturday this year, I’ll be hosting my next virtual coffee hour on Zoom on July 11 at 9:00 a.m. Everyone is welcome. Watch for call-in details on my Facebook page in the coming days.
