It’s been a rough year for the Minnesota taxpayer thanks to the policies that came out of the 2013 legislative session. Here are just a few highlights – by the numbers – of the damage done to Minnesotans this year by the Democrat-controlled state government.
If past is prologue, then we better batten down the hatches. It could be a very expensive 2014 session. There’s already talk of gun control measures, unfunded mandates on our local schools, and new regulatory burdens for our small businesses that provide most of the jobs in our community.
The legislative session begins on February 25. I continue to be available for constituent meetings, calls, and e-mails. Please let me know what thoughts, comments, and concerns you have as the session approaches. You can contact me at Rep.Mary.Franson@House.MN or call my office at 651-296-3201. You can also send mail to my office address: 211 State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55155.
I hope you had a Merry Christmas and wish you and your family a very happy 2014!
