ST. PAUL – Rep. Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) released the following statement after it was announced Thursday that a motion for an injunction blocking the childcare unionization law was granted by the federal appeals court.

"Today's ruling from the federal appeals court is the first step to remedy the injustice done by Democrats to the hardworkin...g childcare providers and parents of Minnesota. As a mom and former childcare provider, I know firsthand we don't need big union bosses increasing costs and creating fewer options for the care of our precious children," said Franson. "While the legal battle over this law is far from over, I'm happy Minnesota moms and dads and their childcare providers can be breath a little easier for now as the threat of forced childcare unionization is no longer imminent."
