Legislative Update - 5 March, 2021
I hope you have been able to get outdoors and enjoy this early taste of spring! Our days are getting brighter both literally and figuratively. Minnesota was recently ranked 3rd in our ability to distribute the Covid-19 vaccine. At our current rate we should be able to vaccinate all Minnesotans 70 years or older by the end of the month! With the new single dose vaccines now available, this pace will continue to speed up. To track vaccines, visit the Department of Health's dashboard

The state budget officials announced a new economic forecast
, highlighting a turnaround in our state budget outlook. This is good news, but the fact remains too many Minnesotans are still struggling as a result of the health and economic impacts from the pandemic. Those who were already struggling before the pandemic have experienced even greater hardship over the past year. We need to come together to invest in what Minnesotans value most - like excellent public schools, health care, and support for small businesses and families - to ensure we can all pull through this crisis.
