Legislative Update from Rep. Mary Franson

Friday, January 15, 2021

Dear Friends,

Another busy week of committee meetings and floor sessions in St. Paul has ended. I introduced my first bill which would provide grants for those who are seeking to become a community health worker. These workers play an important role in our communities helping people in areas such as mental health, chemical health, and housing.

I was very pleased to learn that the federal government passed the Stop Female Mutilation Act. As a tireless advocate for the safety of women and young girls, I have worked so hard in Minnesota to end this abusive practice. I will never stop fighting for women’s health and their dignity.

This week I proudly stood with all my colleagues in the House Republican Caucus to stand against the violence in Washington, D.C. on January 6th. You can read our letter denouncing the events here.

We must defend every American’s First Amendment right to free speech and peaceful assembly. However, violence must be strongly condemned. During the violence in Minneapolis over the summer I said that those who participate in unlawful behavior must be held accountable, and the same must be applied to those who attacked the Capitol. Justice must be applied equally, no matter one’s political persuasion.

I am praying for our country during this extraordinary time. Americans need to come together united in our love for this nation and respect for the freedoms we are all given.
