Legislative Update (Jan. 13, 2015)

Wednesday, January 14, 2015

Friends and Neighbors,

I’m humbled to once again serve as your voice in the House of Representatives. I treasure the opportunity to represent our community, and am looking forward to serving you and your family this legislative session.

Our Priorities

On Thursday, we introduced our first five bills in the House, which represent our five major priorities this legislative session: growing jobs, providing our children with the best education possible, ensuring that our seniors receive top-notch long-term care, investing in our roads and bridges, and securing access and affordability in health care. These five priorities will help us to ensure that Minnesota continues to move forward and provide more opportunity for our children and grandchildren.

My Committees

This session, I am very honored to be serving as the Chair of the Civil Law and Data Practices committee, where I can work to see that your private information is protected. In addition to my role on the Civil Law and Data Practices committee, I will be serving as a member of the Commerce and Regulatory Reform, Government Operations and Elections Policy, Job Growth and Energy Affordability Policy and Finance, and Rules and Legislative Administration committees. I look forward to hearing many bills that will help Minnesota families and businesses.

Serve Our Community

Serving our community is a great honor. If you reside in Ward 4 of Coon Rapids, or know someone who does, please consider applying to serve as a City Council member in the seat left vacant by the Mayor’s election. You can find the ward map and application on the Coon Rapids website. Applications are due by 4:30pm on Friday, January 16, 2015.

Meet with Me

If you plan on visiting the Capitol, please be sure to call my Legislative Assistant at (651) 296-5813 to schedule a time to sit down with me in my office to discuss the issues that are most important to you! I look forward to seeing many new and familiar faces throughout the legislative session, and always treasure the time I spend meeting with community members.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve as your voice in Saint Paul.


Rep. Peggy Scott
