Legislative Update

Friday, February 9, 2018

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Here is an update from the Capitol.

Public Safety Committee
Yesterday, I had the honor of being appointed Chair of the House Public Safety and Security Policy and Finance Committee by House Speaker Kurt Daudt.  The Public Safety Committee is tasked with providing oversight and funding for all areas within public safety, including the court system, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and other corrections and justice programs.  As a former law enforcement officer, I am truly honored to be named chair of this important committee.  Since last session we funded public safety and judiciary programs for the next budget cycle, the session ahead will be dedicated to public safety policy reforms.  I look forward to getting to work in order to create policies that prioritize the safety of Minnesotans as well as provide law enforcement with the tools and support needed to continue serving and protecting our communities.


As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance to you or your family on a matter of state government.  I can be reached by phone at 651-296-4346 or by email at

Have a great weekend.
