Proposed DFL redistricting map irks McCollum

The Minnesota DFL Party submitted a congressional redistricting plan Friday that would place Democratic Rep. Betty McCollum into a district with GOP Rep. Michele Bachmann. Bachmann is currently running for the GOP presidential nomination, but hasn't ruled out another run for Congress. The plan has prompted McCollum's chief of staff to send an e-mail criticizing the proposal. "The DFL Chair and his high-paid lawyers have proposed a congressional map to the redistricting panel that is hyper-partisan and bizarre," McCollum's chief of staff Bill Harper said in the email. "Their plan ignores the ...

McCollum blames Tea Party for nation's political gridlock

Mary Leary, a small business owner from Mendota Heights, isn't much concerned with the volatility currently gripping Wall Street. The partisanship and structural gridlock in national American politics are what's on her mind.She was one of more than 100 who gathered in St. Paul Tuesday night for Congresswoman Betty McCollum's town hall meeting. "It's more of the gridlock that has become really, really bad," Leary said as she waited to see McCollum, a politician she admires. "It's lethal." Constituents worried about rollercoaster stock markets, near government default, a potentially broken ...

McCollum: Join Me In Fighting To Save the Affordable Care Act
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) delivered the following remarks on the House Floor about the Affordable Care Act and Republican plans to repeal it: I rise today in strong support of the Affordable Care Act, a law that has made a real difference in the lives of Minnesotans and Americans. After seven years attacking the ACA, Republicans still haven’t come up with a plan to replace this law. Instead, they plan to work with President-elect Donald Trump to repeal this law and destroy the progress we have made. Repealing the ACA would leave tens of millions of Americans uninsured. Repealing the ACA would let insurance companies deny coverage to the more than 2 million Minnesotans with pre-existing conditions. And repealing the ACA would eliminate free, high-quality preventive care for hundreds of thousands of families in my district. Make no mistake: Republicans’ ACA repeal plans would turn back the clock and leave millions of Americans just one illness away from financial rui
McCollum Sworn-In To 115th Congress
Congresswoman Betty McCollum released the following statement after being sworn-in to represent the families of Minnesota's Fourth District in the United States House of Representatives in the 115th Congress: I was honored to be sworn in today as the 115th Congress convened in Washington. I am very grateful to the families of Minnesota’s Fourth District for giving me the opportunity to represent our shared values in the U.S. House of Representatives. As we all know, Republicans control both the U.S. House and Senate. On January 20th, Donald Trump will become President of the United States. It is no secret that I am strongly opposed to many of the policies they are proposing. Our Minnesota values will be under serious threat in the 115th Congress and I intend to stand up for the constituents and families I represent. The dangerous Trump-GOP proposals include: Repealing the Affordable Care Act. President-elect Trump and Republicans have already laid the groundwork to repeal the Afforda

McCollum Statement Honoring Career of Doug Peterson
Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute and honor the career of Doug Peterson, who will retire from his position as President of the Minnesota Farmers Union on December 31, 2016. Doug has worked dutifully on behalf of the people of Minnesota for more than two decades, serving in the Minnesota State Legislature from 1990 to 2002 before leading the Minnesota Farmers Union from 2002 through 2016.  It was my profound honor to serve with Doug in the Minnesota State Legislature for eight years. Having had the opportunity to work closely with him on the Environment and Natural Resources Committee and later on the Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture Finance Committee, I was able to see first-hand the level of expertise and commitment Doug brought to his work.  From our time serving together in the Minnesota State Legislature, Doug became, and still remains a dear friend of mine. Few people have had more of a positive and lasting impact on Minnesota agriculture policy than Doug. A
