Legislative Update: April 18, 2022

Monday, April 18, 2022

Dear Neighbors,

As the legislature returns from last week’s recess, I hope you and your families had a very happy Passover, Easter, and Ramadan. 

We have really been busy at the capitol, passing finance bills out of committee to outline our budget priorities. Working together, I am confident we can do good for the people of Minnesota.

Reforming Structured Settlement Buyouts

The House DFL’s Commerce omnibus bill includes my proposal to reform the practice of purchasing structured settlement payments of accident victims and regulate how those transactions are approved. This is a huge step forward in consumer protection, as this legislation allows judges to consider a wider array of the variety of factors to determine if a deal is in a seller's best interest, additionally being allowed to assess if the seller understands the transaction, and determine whether the sale is fair.

This legislation clarifies the existing laws whose vagueness has allowed bad actors to take advantage of accident victims. I will always fight for consumer protection.

Reducing Costs for Minnesota Families

The House DFL remains committed to championing the causes of the working families who have made our economic recovery possible. By working to reduce many of their largest expenses, Minnesotan families will have an easier time paying for essentials.
