Tomorrow, we’ll be taking up legislation to provide additional funds for the Minnesota Family Investment Program, increase the legal age of tobacco use to 21 (I'm a co-author of HF331), mandate more transparency in drug pricing, make technical changes to Commerce Department policies (I am the chief author of HF4055), and more. You can watch tomorrow’s floor debate live at 1:30 PM.
This week in the Minnesota House, we’ve spent a lot of time on the “virtual” House floor, passing legislation that supports our hourly school workers, protects our elections, and delivers economic security to Minnesotans. Here’s a quick overview of what we passed this week.
Supporting Our Schools’ Hourly Workers
As we work to support the economic security of Minnesotans, it’s important we don’t leave anyone behind, especially those who continue to support our students. Our schools’ hourly employees remain crucial to the success of our students, even more so during COVID-19. Our House bill delivers the economic security and clarity they deserve.
