RELEASE: Heintzeman Takes Oath of Office, Announces Committee Assignments for 2023-2024 Legislative Session

Tuesday, January 3, 2023

St. PaulMN– Minnesota’s 2023 Legislative Session officially began January 3rd as Rep. Josh Heintzeman, R-Nisswa, and 133 other state representatives took the oath of office during a ceremony at the State Capitol in St. Paul. 

“It is an honor to have earned your trust and confidence to represent you, your family, and our community in St. Paul,” Heintzeman said. “Working for the good people of the Brainerd Lakes Area is a responsibility I take very seriously, and I cannot wait to get to work this year to make sure your voice is heard loud and clear at the legislature. This is sure to be a busy year as we negotiate a new two-year state budget and make decisions on what to do with the state’s $17.5 billion budget surplus. As for myself, I will continue to advocate for the surplus to be returned to taxpayers and for responsible budgeting that keeps the size of government in check.”

Most of Rep. Heintzeman’s work during the first months of session will take place in House committees. For the 2023-2024 legislative biennium, Heintzeman will serve as the Republican-lead on the Environment and Natural Resources Finance and Policy Committee. He has also been assigned to both the Legacy Finance Committee and the Ways and Means Committee.

Heintzeman encourages area residents to contact him if they have any legislative questions, concerns, or ideas. He can be reached by phone at 651-296-4333. He can also be contacted via email at, or via U.S. Mail at 375 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155.
