Friday, July 22 at 5 p.m. is the deadline for frontline workers to apply for a bonus approved by the legislature this year. Money set aside for this program will be split equally among all approved applicants. If you are a frontline worker, please apply if eligible and spread the word to friends and family. Thank you to all those who came to work during the height of the pandemic so we could stay safe. We owe you a debt of gratitude.
You can now order a third round of free at-home COVID-19 tests. Click here to place your order or call 1-800-232-0233 (TTY 1-888-720-7489). More COVID-19 updates are available through the Minnesota Department of Health website, or the U of M Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy (CIDRAP).
Serving as your State Representative
One of the joys of serving in the House of Representatives is being able to communicate directly with you through these e-updates. Tomorrow marks the 60-day deadline from the end of the legislative session and state law prohibits me from reaching out to constituents individually through e-updates. This law is designed to keep our elections fair and competitive by ensuring that incumbent candidates don’t use official resources for an advantage in the months leading up to an election.
I am still available to help with state-level problems and to discuss important issues in our community, so if you have any questions or feedback you’d like to share, you can contact me by email at email@example.com or call (651) 296-9934.
