Legislative Update

Monday, March 13, 2023

Dear Neighbors,

It’s been another busy week in Saint Paul as we near the halfway point of session. Even though things are quite busy I still have plenty of time for constituents, if you ever have an issue you’d like to talk about don’t hesitate to reach out. I’m more than happy to chat in the office or over zoom. The best way to schedule a meeting is to reach out to my legislative assistant Farhin Sayeed by email at or phone at 651-296-4279.


I had a great meeting with a couple fellow Gophers as they advocated for funding for the entire U of M system.

Increasing Protection for Victims

I am incredibly proud that my bipartisan bill to improve our laws around recording someone naked without their consent passed the House floor unanimously. Previously our law had a technicality where the recording was only illegal if it took place through a window or some other opening. It also had a very short statute of limitations that often expired before a victim knew they had been secretly recorded. My bill fixes both problems. This bill will provide justice for the victims of these situations while providing future protections so perpetrators are held fully accountable. The bill is moving in the Senate, and I hope it gets to the Governor’s desk soon to be enacted into law! Here is one of the stories which inspired this law.


Women’s History Month

March is Women's History Month. Let’s use this month to remember and honor all of the amazing women who paved the way for us. There is still a lot of work we need to do to stand up for equal rights in Minnesota and I am committed to pursuing this important work at the Capitol. 


Capital Investment/Local Jobs & Projects Bill

The Minnesota House has taken the first bipartisan step in finishing the business of 2022 by approving nearly $1.9 billion in investments for local jobs and projects throughout the state.

The package of legislation we passed addresses hundreds of critical infrastructure projects that have gone unfunded for too long. There are leaky roofs in state buildings, an outdated campus chemistry laboratory, unstable riverbanks, kids taking unsafe routes to schools, housing that needs to be built for our most vulnerable and failing wastewater infrastructure. A wastewater project for Arden Hills was included in this package. I’m always glad to carry bonding projects for our community to ensure that important needs are met without requiring local taxpayers to foot the bill.

These and other projects are crucial to communities throughout the state, and inflation is only causing them to go up higher in cost the longer we delay. This legislation requires a supermajority to pass, meaning the Senate, like the House, will need Republican support to get this funding over the finish line.
