Hudson returns to Capitol for new session

Monday, February 12, 2024


ST. PAUL – Minnesota’s 2024 legislative session began Monday and Rep. Walter Hudson, R-Albertville, said it’s good to be back at the Capitol working for District 30A residents with crucial issues on tap for the coming months.

“My best advice to area residents for the new session is to brace yourself,” Hudson said. “Democrats still have full control of the Capitol and have made it crystal clear they’re not slowing down on pushing their reckless agenda from the radical left. Last year, they blew through a $19 billion state budget surplus, raised taxes by $10 billion and increased the state budget by 40 percent during a time of stifling inflation. They legalized ending unborn lives up to the very moment of birth and stripped parental custody rights from moms and dads of kids suffering from gender dysphoria. And they banned energy production from sources which make up 80 percent of our current power grid.

“This year, a committee hearing already has been held on 'assisted suicide,' a scheme which we know has resulted in the abuse and disposal of vulnerable people wherever it has become law. They also plan to make Minnesota a sanctuary state for illegal immigration, after passing 'drivers licenses for all' last year. It’s abundantly clear Democrats are catering to fringe activists instead of doing what’s best for all Minnesotans.

“We need more balance in St. Paul, plain and simple, because today’s one-party control is not only bad for the people of our state, it is dangerous in many cases. Just look at our schools, where a Democrat change in law last year resulted in resource officers being pulled from buildings around our state, compromising the safety of our children, teachers and staff.”

Hudson said he welcomes correspondence throughout the session and encourages District 30A residents to call (651) 296-1534 or email to get in touch.
