RELEASE: Igo Takes Oath of Office, Announces Committee Assignments for 2023-2024 Legislative Session

Tuesday, January 3, 2023

St. Paul, MN– Minnesota’s 2023 Legislative Session officially began January 3rd as Rep. Spencer Igo, R-Wabana Township, and 133 other state representatives took the oath of office during a ceremony at the State Capitol in St. Paul. 

“I am looking forward to another year representing you, your family, our communities, and the Northland in the state legislature,” Igo said. “There is a lot on our plate this year as we need to negotiate a new two-year state budget and make decisions on what to do with the state’s historic $17.5 billion budget surplus. Lawmakers should pass a reasonable budget that fits the priorities of Minnesotans and makes long term generational impacts like tax cuts and returning the surplus to taxpayers to help mitigate the effects of inflation. Additionally, I will continue my work to promote responsible mining on the Iron Range that supports our communities and mine the critical minerals needed to build our future economy.”

Most of Rep. Igo’s work during the first months of session will take place in House committees. For the 2023-2024 legislative biennium, Igo will serve on the Climate and Energy Finance and Policy Committee, the Economic Development Finance and Policy Committee, and the Sustainable Infrastructure Policy Committee.

Igo encourages area residents to contact him if they have any legislative questions, concerns, or ideas. He can be reached by phone at 651-296-4936. He can also be contacted via email at, or via U.S. Mail at 233 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155.
