The 2023 legislative session wrapped up on May 22nd and Governor Walz has already signed our major budget bills and legislative priorities into law! For a birds-eye-view of what we accomplished this session, check out House Speaker Melissa Hortman and Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic’s recent op-ed in the Star Tribune: Historic progress for generations to come.
I am proud to report that this session many bills I authored have been signed into law! Here is a list of the 17 bills, including links to the bill language by clicking the hyperlinked House File number.

June is Pride Month, a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and their achievements. It is also a time to reflect on the progress that has been made and to continue to fight for equality for all. I am proud of the work we did this session to ensure Minnesota can stand as a welcoming and inclusive state for everyone.
Mississippi River Tour
This week I joined fellow legislators with the National Caucus of Environmental Legislators, Audubon, and Fish and Wildlife Service on a Mississippi River tour. We talked about the impact of floodplain forests on the biodiversity of birds, and the responsibility we have as Minnesotans to protect the headwaters from negative downstream impacts.
