Rep. Tim Miller (R-Prinsburg) plans to continue advocating for the unborn. It just won’t be as a House member.
He announced Monday that 2022 will be his final year serving in the State Capitol.
“Serving in the Minnesota House of Representatives has been one of the greatest honors of my life. When the people of House District 17A elected me in 2014, my singular goal was to give them the representation they deserved. To my constituents, I want you to know that I have worked every day to earn the trust you placed in me,” he said in a statement.
“Still, life is full of exciting beginnings and inevitable endings. After careful thought and prayer, I am announcing that I will not seek reelection to the Minnesota House of Representatives. These last seven years have been full of triumph and challenges; the expected and unexpected. Through it all, I am thankful for God’s great faithfulness.”
Now in his fourth term, Miller, one of four members of the New House Republican Caucus, currently serves on the House Agriculture Finance and Policy, Taxes, and Ways and Means committees. Prior committee membership includes, capital investment, legacy, public safety, transportation, and veterans and military affairs.
“The Minnesota Legislature will be a busy place as 2022 unfolds and I intend to be in the arena. Until the end, I will fight for all the issues we care about most: life, families, and freedom,” he said.
As for his future?

“Many of you know that pro-life work has been the most important part of my time in government. As such, I am thrilled to announce that I will be focusing all my efforts on defending the unborn with a new initiative I will be discussing soon,” he said. “Protecting the unborn is one of the most consequential missions of our time, and I am eager to continue the fight.”
