Legislative Update - March 29, 2019
Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to our town hall last weekend. There was a great turnout, and we were able to have some good conversations.
Rally for the 2020 Census
Getting an accurate count is incredibly important to MN. There's a possibility of losing one congressional seat. Join us on Monday, April 1 from 11 to 11:30 a.m. on the steps of the Capitol to learn about how we can ensure that every Minnesotan is counted.
Protecting Minnesotans from Sexual Harassment
Last week the House approved legislation to improve Minnesota's sexual harassment statutes (HF 10
). For years, the courts have used an unreasonably high “severe or pervasive” standard for determining what behavior constitutes sexual harassment under the law. This bill would lower that threshold, making it easier for those who have been harassed to seek justice.
Making Prescription Drugs More Affordable
Nearly one in four adults struggle to afford the medications they need to stay healthy. That's why I'm supporting a new comprehensive plan to make prescription drugs more affordable. The bills included in this plan would stop price gouging by Big Pharma and put power back in the hands of Minnesotans and their doctors. More information is available here
Please continue to share your input and ideas as the session continues. It's an honor to serve as your representative.
