First Day of Session

Monday, February 12, 2024

Dear Neighbors,

Today is the first day of session! The second year of our biennium is focused on policy changes and bonding projects. I’m excited to be carrying bills on both, including multiple bills that were generated as a result of constituents reaching out to me about various issues. I’ll keep you posted on my bills as they move through the committee process.

New Laws

After a historic session in 2023, many new laws went into effect on July 1st and August 1st, 2023, and January 1st 2024. The nonpartisan office of House Public Information has a summary of the new laws here:

Child Tax Credit
With our nation leading Child Tax Credit, many families will save up to $1,750 for each dependent. Democrats are cutting child poverty by one third with this rebate. You can claim the tax credit by filing a 2023 income tax return. The $1,750 credit is for each child 17 years old and younger, with no limit on the number of children. For all tax filers, this credit begins to phase out at an income level of $35,000 and fully phases out at a maximum of $90,750 for a family with four children.


Crime Down Across MN, New Gun Laws

New data shows that crime has dropped across Minnesota in every major category. As we move past a pandemic era spike, I will continue to support laws and funding that improve public safety, like last year when I voted for record funding aimed at ensuring the safety of Minnesotans.

There are two new laws that recently went into effect that will help reduce gun violence. The laws will implement improved criminal background checks and extreme risk protection orders to ensure that guns stay out of the hands of those who would cause harm. I look forward to supporting future gun violence prevention efforts this upcoming session.

EV Rebates

Last session we passed an Electric Vehicle Rebate Program allowing residents to receive a rebate of up to $2,500 for a new EV purchase and $600 for a used purchase. Electric cars, plug-ins or hybrids purchased or leased on or after May 25, 2023 are eligible. The application process goes live on February 7th, and you can find more information at
