St. Paul, MN - Today, House Speaker Melissa Hortman announced the reappointment of Rep. Rick Hansen (DFL – South Saint Paul) as the incoming chair of the Environment and Natural Resources Policy and Finance Committee in the Minnesota House for the 2023 legislative session. 

“I’m very grateful that Speaker Hortman has entrusted me with this critical committee once again. Minnesotans value our environment a great deal and I will run the committee knowing that these issues are a top priority for our state. With the DFL trifecta we have an opportunity to enact long lasting protections to ensure future generations can enjoy the same environmental benefits we do. I look forward to working with my colleagues to make this an effective and efficient committee.”
