First Week of Session

Friday, February 16, 2024

Dear Neighbors,

It’s been a very productive first week of session. It feels great to be back working to improve our community! Here are some updates from the Capitol:

1. My Work at the Capitol - Follow My Activity

  • Session is often a very busy and hectic time, but with a few handy links you can easily track my legislative activity.
  • This year I am serving as the Vice Chair of the Taxes committee, and I am serving on the Transportation, Veterans and Military Affairs, and the Housing committees. You can find links to these committees on my House profile page.
  • To keep track of the bills I am the lead author on, click here. To track the bills I am a co-author on, click here.
  • To follow all legislative activity week-by-week, be sure to bookmark the combined legislative calendar.
  • And as always, follow me on Facebook

2. ArtLab Rx Visit - Art Therapy Transforming Lives

  • I recently went with Rep. Newton and Sen. Kupec to the ArtLab Rx in Blaine.
  • We discussed the field of art therapy and the importance of making it a licensed profession in Minnesota. We even got a chance to try a short art therapy exercise ourselves!
  • I’m co-authoring HF 2743 which would establish licensure for art therapy, and we’re hoping to get a hearing on the bill this year.

3. Upcoming Town Hall With Speaker Hortman - Come Say Hi!

  • I am hosting a town hall on Wednesday, February 21, from 6:30 - 8 pm, at the Mary Ann Young Center with House Speaker Melissa Hortman. I encourage you to come by to learn about the 2024 session and share your thoughts.
  • You can sign up for the town hall and presubmit questions here.
