Legislative Update - January 17, 2019
I hope all of you were able to spend time with your families and loved ones over the holidays. I'm wishing you the very best in the new year and I'm excited for what it and the 2019-2020 legislative session will bring. It is an honor to continue working with you.
Inauguration of Minnesota's Constitutional Officers
On January 7, I gathered with people from across the state to watch the inauguration of Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan. Secretary of State Steve Simon, State Auditor Julie Blaha, and Attorney General Keith Ellison also took their oaths of office during the ceremony. I was inspired by the speeches and performances and encourage you to watch the inauguration here.
The next day, I was sworn in. I'm honored to continue being a voice for our community at the Capitol.
Committees are starting to meet this week. I'm looking forward to chairing the Subcommittee on Local Government in addition to serving on Government Operations, Long-Term Care, State Government Finance, and Transportation Finance and Policy.
You can find a full schedule and more information about these committees, including meeting agendas, minutes, and links to audio and video archives here.
