St. Paul, MN– Minnesota’s 2023 Legislative Session officially began January 3rd as State Representative Mike Wiener, R-Long Prairie, and 133 other state representatives took the oath of office during a ceremony at the State Capitol in St. Paul.
“It is a tremendous honor to have earned the trust and respect of voters and to serve as their representative in the state legislature,” Wiener said. “It is sure to be a busy first year in St. Paul as we work to negotiate a new two-year state budget and decide what to do with the state’s $17.5 billion budget surplus. It is my hope that a responsible budget can be agreed to that limits the size of government and that the surplus is returned to Minnesotans through permanent tax relief.”
Most of Rep. Wiener’s work during the first months of session will take place in House committees. For the 2023-2024 legislative biennium, Wiener will serve on the Economic Development Finance and Policy Committee and the Taxes Committee.
