Dear Friends and Neighbors,
The 2019 legislative session officially began on Tuesday when 133 of my colleagues and myself were sworn into office during a ceremony at the State Capitol. It is an honor and a privilege to represent our community in St. Paul for another term.
Every year at the capitol is different and presents new and unique challenges not only for our district, but for the entire state. I look forward to getting to work and tackling these challenges head-on as my colleagues and I strive to ensure that Minnesota continues to be a place where all Minnesotans have the opportunity to prosper.
I am proud to announce that I once again will be the Republican-lead on the Education Policy Committee. I have devoted a great deal of my time and energy as a lawmaker, working to improve our schools and to ensure that every child in our state has the opportunity to receive a world-class education.
Other committees that I have been assigned to include Education Finance Division, Taxes, and the Ethics Committee—or which I will again be the Republican-lead.
I have already introduced a bill for Mille Lacs County plus several education policy bills agreed to last session before the governor vetoed the omnibus bill in which each was contained.
I will have more updates for you as session progresses. In the meantime, I encourage you to contact me if you have any legislative questions, concerns, or ideas. I can be reached by phone at 651-296-6746 or via email at email@example.com.
Have a good weekend,
