This upcoming legislative session will be important for Minnesota’s response to COVID-19 and its subsequent economic recovery. With in-person office meetings currently not a safe option, these events are more important than ever for us to touch base and connect on what’s important to our community. I hope you will join us!
Economic Relief for Minnesotans
Ahead of the regular legislative session in January, we have one last special session taking place this month. The latest round of COVID safety precautions in response to the surge of COVID-19 cases has resulted in additional hardships for local businesses, many of which have been struggling since the onset of the virus in our state. With inaction at the federal level, it’s up to us in Minnesota to make sure our local businesses, workers, and families are properly supported as we “dial back” to protect our neighbors. Negotiations continue for what a new package of economic relief legislation will look like, but one thing that is clear is this isn’t an issue that can be put off much longer. Stay tuned for updates on when we’ll be back in the coming days to pass this legislation.
