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 Statement on Senate Republicans’ Trumpcare Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement about Senate Republicans unveiled a “discussion draft” of their bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act: “Just like House Republicans’ legislation, Senate Republicans’ Trumpcare bill takes away health care from children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities in order to give billionaires lavish tax breaks. “Millions of Americans will lose their health coverage. Out-of-pocket costs will soar and essential consumer protections will be gutted. Older Americans will be forced to pay a crushing age tax, while women will see their access to care curtailed by the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Deep Medicaid cuts will hurt children, people with disabilities, seniors with long-term care needs, and our most vulnerable neighbors. “Make no mistake: Trumpcare is mean. I will stand united with my Democratic colleagues and the vocal majority of Americans who oppose this disastrous bill. We must protec
McCollum Statement on 2017 LGBT Pride Month
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement celebrating LGBT Pride Month: “Each June, we celebrate LGBT Pride Month. We honor the contributions of LGBT Americans, we recognize the activism and energy of LGBT leaders in holding the United States to its highest ideals, and we reflect on our ongoing work to forge a more just and inclusive country. “We have achieved tremendous progress when it comes to equal rights for LGBT Americans. From our 1993 ban on workplace discrimination to our 2012 vote for marriage equality, Minnesota has led the way. At the federal level, we have secured nationwide marriage equality and finally ended the military’s harmful ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy. “Unfortunately, the journey to full equality is not over. President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans are attacking hard-won LGBT rights, appointing anti-LGBT officials to senior roles, and rolling back protections for transgender Americans. Instead of t
McCollum Welcomes His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Minnesota

"Today, let us focus our minds, our hearts, our prayers, and, as free people, let us work to make the people of Tibet free. It is long past time for China’s repression in Tibet to end.  The human rights abuses must stop.  The prisoners of conscience must be set free.  The destruction of Tibetan culture and the repression of Buddhist monks and scholars must stop," Congresswoman McCollum said. "China is a powerful country. But, the United States is a free and powerful country. The United States must never abandon our commitment
McCollum Offers Amendment to Honor Commitments to Military Recruits
With the Department of Defense considering a plan that could expose as many as 1,000 foreign-born American military recruits to deportation, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) will offer an amendment during tomorrow’s House Appropriations Committee markup to ensure the Pentagon upholds contracts with foreign nationals who have signed up to serve the United States. On Monday, the Washington Post reported that “the Pentagon is considering a plan to cancel enlistment contracts for 1,000 foreign-born recruits without legal immigration status, knowingly exposing them to deportation.” About 1,800 foreign-born recruits have signed enlistment contracts under Military Accessions Vital to National Interest (MAVNI) but are still awaiting orders for basic training. An additional 2,400 are reservists who likewise have not yet completed basic training. Out of these approximately 4,200 recruits, at least 1,000 have been waiting so long to be given orders for basic training that their vis
