Legislative Update- July 20, 2022

Wednesday, July 20, 2022


Dear Neighbors,

I hope this finds you well- and staying cool. It’s been a busy summer, and it’s been nice to catch up with neighbors and see so many out and about after we’ve had to take a pause on large gatherings in recent years.

Happy Birthday America Parade



This week, I had the opportunity to celebrate the opening of the new Event and Education wings at the Plymouth Community Center. Thanks to the advocacy of community members, we were able to secure the state bond funding to make this expansion possible. It’s been an honor to work with Plymouth families and partner with residents to get his project off the ground for everyone to enjoy.

Frontline Worker Bonus Pay Reminder

This Friday, July 22 is the deadline for frontline workers to apply for bonus pay. This past legislative session, the House and Senate agreed to invest $500 million worth of bonus pay for those who couldn’t work from home during the darkest days of the pandemic, and in doing so, put their own health at greater risk. Health care workers, first responders, child care providers, food service and retail workers, and more are eligible.

New 988 Hotline 

Mental health crises – and tragically, suicide – are becoming a greater public health concern. This past Saturday, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline transitioned to a new service with an easier-to-remember number to help those in need. Now, by dialing or texting 988, a trained mental health counselor is available 24 hours a day, seven days per week if you or someone close to you is experiencing a crisis.The new 988 system is better equipped to respond to mental health crises, and the new number will help ensure people can quickly get support.

Workers can connect callers to additional support or in-person care. The service is free and confidential.


Last Update & Survey Reminder

Due to state law prohibiting e-mails like these in an election period, this will be my final email newsletter this summer. While I can no longer send these updates, I encourage you to keep in touch with me with your input, ideas, or if I can ever be of assistance at or 651-296-5511. If you haven’t had a chance to yet, please fill out my short legislative survey to share your thoughts with me on a variety of issues. I appreciate hearing from you!

I’m honored to represent you and our Plymouth neighbors at the Capitol.

Take care,

Ginny Klevorn
