Legislative Report by Rep. Sandra Masin - July 10, 2014
 
Posted on 10 July 2014

Dear Neighbors,

Minnesota has taken an important step toward securing substantial resources to strengthen our ongoing disaster relief and recovery efforts after last month’s severe storms and flooding.

Governor Dayton on Wednesday requested a Presidential Disaster Declaration covering 51 total counties, including Dakota County.

In order to receive financial assistance from the federal government, damages from a natural disaster must meet a $7.3 million threshold. With $10.8 million in eligible damages documented through preliminary assessments to date and another $55 million in response costs and damages to uninsured public infrastructure reported by local governments, there is little doubt we can expect to receive significant aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – something that President Obama underscored during his recent visit to Minnesota.

If granted by the President, the disaster declaration would provide assistance to townships, cities, counties, schools and certain private not-for-profit organizations for uninsured and eligible storm-related damage to public infrastructure.

Examples of eligible expenses include:
  • Debris Removal
  • Emergency Protective Services
  • Repair or replacement of storm-damaged:
    • Roads and Bridges
    • Water control facilities
    • Buildings and equipment
    • Municipal utilities
    • Parks and recreational facilities
If the President declares a major disaster, FEMA would fund three-quarters of the approved costs, with Minnesota covering the remaining quarter of the non-federal share.

Governor Dayton also requested federal funding for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. All counties in the state would be eligible to apply for assistance under this program which provides funding to state and local governments and certain private not-for-profit organizations to prevent or reduce long-term risk to life and property from natural hazards.

Federal and state aid typically only covers costs to repair and replace uninsured public infrastructure, but financial assistance may still be possible for homeowners, renters and business owners from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). More information about SBA disaster loans is available online at www.sba.gov, by email at disastercustomerservice@sba.gov or by phone at 800-659-2955.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if there is anything I can do to be of help during this time of tremendous need.

Sincerely,

Sandy
 

THANK YOU ALL!

July 4th was a perfect day for a parade and it was great seeing so many people out to enjoy it.

I want to especially thank all our parade participants for their efforts. We had a fun unit and received a lot of positive comments.

The Blackbird Quadribent bikes we used also attracted a lot of attention and that is particularly gratifying because the design engineer, Jim Black, resides in our district. 

Many thanks to all for making our July 4 Celebration so special.

End of 2013-2014 Legislative Session: What Was Accomplished
 
Posted on 17 May 2014

The House wrapped up the 2013-2014 Legislative Session on Friday 16 May, 2014. For the first time in a decade the session actually ended early.

This biennium (2-year session) was extraordinarily productive. The budgets which were passed were balanced, Minnesotans will experience tax relief in various forms (in the form of tax cuts to low- and middle-income Minnesotans and in refunds of property taxes, as well as renter's credits.) More than 320,000 Minnesotans will receive a wage increase over the next two years as the minimum wage hike takes effect in stages to reach $9.50 per hour in 2016.

Our schools budgets, decimated by the previous administration, have now been restored although much remains to be done to make up for the many years of neglect.

The new budgets and allocations are in areas that invest in the infrastructure of the state and the human capital of the state. Long Term care caregivers to seniors and disabled persons will receive long-deserved wage raises, job creation and broadband in Greater Minnesota, higher education, education from pre-K to higher education will see more financial allocations, and even potholes in the state which damage cars and impede on smooth transportation received attention and financial allocations. And the budget is balanced!

Of great significance is the passage of Women's Economic Security Act (WESA). This act closes the gaps in wages between genders, provides increased workplace protections, flexibility in employment to pregnant mothers, and expands job opportunities for women in higher-wages jobs.

The last session built on several other significant achievements in 2013: Funding all day kindergarten care for all Minnesota families, and the passage of marriage equality.

There is a lot to be proud and please be assured that none of this would have taken place without your steadfast support, encouragement and communications with your legislators - telling them what you as citizens of the State of Minnesota want to happen!

If you like to know more specific information about specific items, please do not hesitate to call my office at 651/296-3533, or email me at Rep.Sandra.Masin@house.mn

Thank you all!

Rep. Sandy Masin

Women's Economic Security Act (WESA) Passes
 
Posted on 12 May 2014

So much has been going on in the Legislature, culminating months or arduous work and preparation, discussions, and consultations with experts, legislators, and foremost - Voters like you, the reader!

The Women's Economic Security Act (WESA) passes: This is major piece of legislation encompassing various laws that deal with employment fairness, wage fairness, opportunities and wide investments in the future of the State of Minnesota. Rep. Masin was the lead author on the legislative part that dealt with elimination of retaliation against employees who voluntarily discuss their salaries and increase of transparency in the area of wages paid at the workplace.

Gov. Dayton signed this legislation at a festive ceremony in the Governor's Reception Room in the Minnesota State Capitol. The room was filled with legislators, advocates, and their families.

“The Act will provides access to higher wages jobs, wage disclosure protections, pregnancy and nursing accommodations, ensure that women have opportunities to increase their economic security, and more. It tries to address some of the issues that have prevented many women in Minnesota from gaining an economic foothold and helps provide a pathway to prosperity. This is long overdue!"

Patricia Tanji, an Eagan resident and the president of Pay Equity Coalition of MN worked on this Act and its components tirelessly! Senator Sandy Pappas was another important contributor and person to help this act become a reality!

Legislative Update - April 23, 2014
 
Posted on 23 April 2014

Dear Neighbors and Friends,

We've returned from the Easter/Passover break to continue our work this session. Already the House has made progress on several priorities we were hoping to address. Just a couple months into session, we've already passed bills that will provide:
  • $20 million in propane heating assistance
  • $3.4 million to ensure that students get a healthy meal at lunchtime
  • Over $440 million in tax cuts for families, businesses, and farmers
  • Updated workplace regulations that help address pay disparities for female workers
  • An increased minimum wage for workers with protections for small businesses and those who hired teenagers.
Expanding Broadband Internet Access

The House has also passed a supplemental budget that includes a $25 million investment in broadband development. A recent study by ConnectMN, a nonprofit working in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development, showed that 93 percent of Metro-area residents have access to high-speed broadband coverage as opposed to only 46 percent of households in Greater Minnesota.

While that limited access doesn't directly hurt the families and businesses in our area, it does impact our economy. If large portions of Minnesota's communities can't create new jobs, that will slow down the economic growth of the entire state economy. It's in our best interest to make sure schools, families, and businesses have the chance to succeed no matter where they are in Minnesota.

Conference Committees Underway

This is the time when significant bills are being passed by both the House and the Senate on similar topics. When those bills don't match up perfectly, both chambers appoint members to serve on a conference committee that settles the differences. Some major issues that will be decided through the conference committee process include:
  • 5 percent rate increase for long term care
    workers (Both House and Senate agree)
  • Increase in property tax refunds for small businesses (In the House bill)
  • Increase in property tax refunds for homeowners (In the House bill)
  • Increase in property tax refunds for renters (In the House bill)
As the differences between the House and Senate bills get hammered out, we will inch closer and closer to completing our work this session. The last major piece of work to accomplish will be our bonding bill. The Senate is expected to release their list of local infrastructure projects sometime this week, which will give us the chance to create a final list of projects to send to the Governor to be signed into law.

Things are moving quickly in the House. We're excited to continue our progress and get done on time. If you have any questions or ideas about our work at the Legislature, please feel free to contact me by phone (651-296-3533) or email me at rep.sandra.masin@house.mn

April 11, 2014 - Legislative Update
 
Posted on 12 April 2014

Dear Neighbors and Friends,

We made some significant progress this week by passing three important bills on the House floor. The Women's Economic Security Act contained provisions(1) from several bills that addressed the pay gap that still exists for female workers. I personally authored part of this bill, and many other Representatives worked to create a final package that fixes outdated state statutes. More and more families are depending on female workers to serve as their primary bread winner, but that is pretty difficult when women only make 80 cents for every dollar men make. This bill will address that pay gap and help families across Minnesota.

The House also passed a bill this week that will increase our state's minimum wage(2) from its current rate of $6.15/hour and $5.50/hour for large and small businesses. Not only was that wage lower than the national rate, it was lower than our neighboring states. Increasing the rate will mean a pay increase for 357,000 workers in Minnesota. It will mean fewer people are relying on public assistance just to get by. That, in turn, will reduce the cost of public assistance programs for all taxpayers. To make sure the increase in wages isn't too drastic for businesses, the new wage will be phased in over several years until it reaches $9.50/hour and $7.75/hour for large and small businesses by 2016.

Lastly, we passed a bill to address the growing problem of bullying in our schools(3). This bill was put together with input from school administrators and school boards from across the state. The final bill is something which local school districts can work with. It essentially requires every school to either put their own local policy on bullying in place or use the recommended state policy. No student should have to go to school every day with the fear of being bullied. This bill will make sure our local school districts put policies in place to address that issue.

If you have any questions about the progress we made this week, please feel free to contact me. More detailed information on each of the bills I mentioned can be found below.

Sandra Masin

(1)The key provisions of the Women's Economic Security Act include:
  • Allow mothers to stay in the workforce by expanding family leave and providing reasonable accommodations for pregnant and nursing employees and expanding access to high-quality, affordable childcare,
  • Decrease the gender pay gap through workforce development grants to increase the number of women in high-wage, high-demand nontraditional work,
  • Reduce the gender pay gap through increased enforcement of equal pay laws for state contractors and by allowing employees to discuss pay inequities.

(2)The key provisions in the minimum wage bill include:
  • $9.50 minimum wage for large businesses in 2016. $8.00 in August 2014, $9.00 in August 2015,
  • $7.75 minimum wage for small businesses in 2016. $6.50 in August 2014, $7.25 in August 2015. The $7.75 minimum wage rate would also apply for all 16 and 17 year olds, the first 90 days of work for 18 and 19 year olds, and employees working under a J1 visa,
  • Beginning in 2018, all wages would increase each year on January 1st by inflation, but that would be capped at 2.5%. The indexed increase could be stopped at any time by the Commissioner of Labor and Industry in the case of an economic downturn.

(3)The Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools Act will:
  • Require that school districts and charter schools either craft their own policy, or adopt the state model policy, to prevent bullying, cyberbullying, intimidation and promote remedial responses,
  • Schools must consult with students, parents and the community in this process and must review and revise their policies in a timely manner, consistent with other state-reviewed policies.
 

Video Update from the Minnesota House
 
Posted on 1 April 2014

Please click below to see Rep. Masin's update on the work going on in the Minnesota House.


 

Women's Economic Security Act
 
Posted on 30 March 2014

Last week, the House Jobs and Economic Development Finance and Policy Committee approved a bill (HF 2274) authored by State Representative Sandra Masin (DFL-Eagan). The bill became one of seven parts(*) of the Women's Economic Security Act (HF 2536) carried by Rep. Carly Melin.

Masin's bill bars discrimination or retaliation against any employee who discusses salaries and wages with fellow employees. All too often, a worker is threatened by an employer or fired for participating in a discussion about wages in the workplace. It is the law of the land that employees receive equal pay for equal work, but if they do not have information about the comparable wages, they have no way to secure their rights.

With more and more women in the workplace, the University of Minnesota Humphrey School's Center on Women & Public Policy study found that families headed by women are four times more likely to live in poverty. Moreover, the median pay of women is only 80% of the median pay of men.

Clearly, having more information about the pay at the workplace will go a long way in securing equal rights for women in the workplace in the area of payscales. Said Rep. Masin:
"These bills [Women's Economic Security Act] are designed to make sure all workers have equal rights and opportunities in the work place, [..] More and more households are depending on women to support them financially, and now is the time to address the barriers that are still in place for those women."
Rep. Masin wrote in her blog:
The Women's Economic Security Act builds on Minnesota's positive economic momentum by ensuring equal opportunities for women to succeed in the workplace and provide for their families. Members of the public, small business owners, and religious organizations testified in support of the bill at today's hearing.

(*) In addition to the main bill by Rep. Carly Melin, the other 5 components of the legislation heard during last week's committee hearing were:
  • Rep. Yvonne Selcer: Author of HF 2243 (Women entrepreneurs business development grant program created, and money appropriated).
  • Rep. Barb Yarusso: Author of HF 2259 (Nursing mothers; unfair employment practices clarified).
  • Rep. Will Morgan: Author of HF 2291 (Women's economic self-sufficiency promoted; gender segregation in the workforce reduced; gender pay gap reduced through the participation of women in high-wage, high-demand, nontraditional occupations; women and nontraditional jobs grant program established; and money appropriated).
  • Rep. Paul Rosenthal: Author of HF 2366 (Unemployment benefits eligibility modified when applicant is a victim of sexual assault or stalking).
  • Rep. Phyllis Kahn: Author of HF 2371 (Pregnancy and parenting leave provided, and pregnancy accommodations required).


Tax Relief to more than 1 Million Minnesotans
 
Posted on 26 March 2014

Dear Neighbors and Friends,

Last week, the House continued their quick pace by passing a bill to offer tax relief for more than a million middle class Minnesotans. Governor Dayton signed it into law just a few hours later.

Much of the tax relief offered in this bill will come through conforming the state tax code to the federal tax code. It helps makes the process simpler for those filing taxes and for those who process them. But because this change took place during tax season, I'm sure you may have questions about how this bill will impact your 2013 tax return.

What benefits were added for the 2013 returns?
1. Working Family Credit
2. Mortgage Insurance Deduction
3. Mortgage Debt Forgiveness
4. Deduction for Educator Expenses
5. Higher Education Tuition Deduction
6. Student Loan Interest Deduction
7. Education Savings Accounts
8. National Health Corps Scholarships
9. Employer-Provided: Education, Adoption, Transit
10. Tax-Free Charitable IRA Distributions

The bill provides $49 million in tax relief for 2013 through these ten deductions and credits. If you aren't sure whether you qualify for one or more of these tax benefits, follow the link HERE to see more details.

What should I do with my tax return?
Once you know whether you qualify for these benefits or not, use this simple chart to help determine what you need to do next.
What to do with 2013 MN Return

If you qualify for one of the benefits listed above AND you haven't filed your tax return yet, the Department of Revenue is asking that you wait until April 3rd to file your return. At that point, all of the necessary changes will have been made to the software that is used to process state returns.

What will happen after I file my return?
You won't need to do anything right way. If you've already filed, or if an amended tax return is needed, the Department of Revenue will contact you by mail sometime after April 15.

What if I have more questions?
More information is available at the Department of Revenue website (HERE). If you still have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by phone (651-296-3533) or email (rep.sandra.masin@house.mn). I'm always happy to help with any issues you might have.

Rep. Sandra Masin
 

THANK YOU!
