Legislative Update - Ticket Fairness Bill Passes

Friday, April 19, 2024

Dear Neighbors,

We have about a month left of session, and we are working hard to pass our remaining policy bills and supplemental budgets to improve the lives of Minnesotans. Here’s an update from the Capitol:

House Floor Votes

The House has passed policy bill packages in major issue areas building on the work of our historically productive 2023 session and improving the lives of Minnesotans. So far the House has passed: 

  • A?public safety package?that passed unanimously and includes bipartisan provisions that protect victim-survivors and make our system more just. This is my bill, which contains a number of provisions from my colleagues on both sides of the aisle.
  • A labor policy bill that includes provisions to strengthen the minimum wage, ban shadow non-competes, and increase pay transparency. This bill contains one of my provisions, a constituent-driven initiative related to drug testing of employees that streamlines the process for both employers and employees.
  • A K-12 education policy bill that prioritizes policies to improve the experiences of students in Minnesota schools while also making sure the state is measuring and holding schools accountable for meaningful academic outcomes.
  • A Elections policy bill that focuses on improved voter access and election transparency.
Public Safety, K-12, Labor, & Elections Policy Bills

Standing up for Consumers

I’m so happy that HF 1989, my legislation to ensure fair and upfront pricing for event tickets passed out of the House with broad bipartisan support! Since introducing this legislation over a year ago, I’ve heard numerous stories about predatory practices in the ticketing industry. This legislation will help protect consumers.


We also passed legislation to crack down on junk fees to ensure consumers have fair pricing for restaurant meals, hotels, credit cards, and more.

Free Park Day

Get your hiking boots ready — Saturday, April 27 is the next free entrance day to all Minnesota parks! Minnesota state parks are open year-round, and there's a state park within 30 miles of most Minnesotans. With a free day in each season, it's a great opportunity to get out there and explore someplace new! Whether you stay for the whole weekend or just spend a few hours outside, you'll make memories that will last a lifetime. So be sure to get out and visit our wonderful parks!

The Office of the Minnesota Secretary of State recently released a notice of vacancies for various state boards, councils and committees that are accepting applications. Any Minnesotans interested in public service are encouraged to apply! There are positions for people from all backgrounds and professions, from cosmetologists to engineers.
