Happy Independence Day!

Tuesday, July 2, 2019


Happy Independence Day to you and your family! I hope you have an enjoyable and safe holiday and are able to enjoy quality time with family, great food and fireworks! Additionally, if you’re traveling over the holiday, please be sure to drive safely.

Independence Day also offers us an opportunity to look back and be grateful for the actions of our brave founders. While there’s much that may seem to divide us, the fact we Americans live in a free, independent nation is a reason for all to celebrate. Please take a moment this holiday to think about that, and reflect on the countless liberties and freedoms we enjoy every single day.

New Laws in Effect July 1

On July 1, a number of new laws will take effect in the State of Minnesota. They include new funding for various areas of state government – transportation, environment, K-12 Education, etc. - for the upcoming budget cycle.  To read more about our new laws that take effect July 1, click here.


Dairy Assistance Program

Recently, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture announced the rollout of the new Dairy Assistance, Investment, and Relief Initiative (DAIRI) program, which provides financial assistance for small- to medium-sized dairy producers who meet certain qualifications. This program was funded through the Agriculture and the Jobs omnibus bills this session to ensure that our dairy farmers can continue the work that is so important to our state.
