Legislative Update- December 1, 2020

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

Rep. Huot


Dear Neighbors,

I hope this finds you and your family keeping well.

We know that the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create many challenges for Minnesotans of all walks of life, especially working families and small businesses. Minnesota’s new projected economic forecast, which was released today, indicates that our state is well-positioned to provide immediate relief as we await more aid from the federal government. I continue working with our community members, DFL and GOP legislators, and the governor to help curb the spread of the virus and support those who are struggling to make ends meet.

Corporations, billionaires, and well-connected individuals received a disproportionate share of the economic assistance that the federal government approved last spring. In Minnesota, we are focused on supporting those who have been hit hardest by the pandemic. I’m committed to putting working families, small businesses, and Minnesotans whose livelihoods were harmed by COVID-19 first. That means investing in safe, healthy, and inclusive communities so all Minnesotans can thrive, during and after the pandemic.

We recently announced a new economic relief package to keep small businesses afloat, support workers struggling to get by, and help Minnesota families keep food on their tables. I look forward to working with Governor Walz and my colleagues to deliver this much-needed assistance.
