Rep. Lee

Dear Neighbors, 

We’re still in the process of negotiating our budget for Minnesota, with the anticipated goal of passing the complete bipartisan package during a June special session. Every budget year proposes its own unique challenges, but more so this year, considering this will be the budget meant to help Minnesota not only bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic, but ensure that the recovery is equally felt throughout the state.

Besides the financial investments, other crucial proposals being discussed right now are new public safety reforms and police accountability measures. This week, as we reflect on the anniversary of the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer, it’s imperative that any bipartisan agreement for a June special session must also include the measures we’ve been fighting for in the House that will help make Minnesota a more equitable and just state.

The public safety and police accountability measures we’re championing would do the following:

Public Safety Reforms

You can also read the statement from my colleagues and I in the People of Color and Indigenous (POCI) Caucus on the anniversary of George Floyd’s murder, and the work that still remains.



Vaccines Available

It has never been easier for Minnesotans to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Minnesotans can now use the Vaccine Connector to directly schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments at the state’s Community Vaccination Program locations. You can visit to directly schedule appointments at Community Vaccination locations around the state. Here is how you can get your shot:



Memorial Day

I hope you and your loved ones have a safe and reflective Memorial Day Weekend this year.
