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 Comments on Las Vegas Mass Shooting
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) posted the following on Facebook after a shooting in Las Vegas, Nev. left at least 58 dead and hundreds wounded: This morning, we woke up to yet another mass shooting, this one the deadliest in modern American history. Today, hundreds of families are grieving for those killed and praying for the wounded to recovery. We join them in prayer. But there is another tragedy in America today, one that will impact us tomorrow, next week, and that will never stop until action is taken: that tragedy is that we live in a country where the President and Congress will mourn those killed in mass shootings but do nothing to protect the American people from more of them in the future. President Trump and the Republican Congress protect gun manufacturers and the gun lobby, but deny everyday American moms, dads, kids, and grandparents the right to live without fear of gun violence. I am the co-sponsor of numerous bills to responsibly regulate firearms. None o
McCollum Statement on Congressman Emmer’s Anti-BWCA Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement on the MINER Act, legislation introduced by Congressman Tom Emmer that paves the way for dangerous mining adjacent to Minnesota’s Boundary Waters: “Congressman Emmer’s bill is an all-out attack on our nation’s most visited wilderness — the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. It allows a South American mining conglomerate to conduct dangerous sulfide-ore mining next to this pristine national treasure. It terminates a careful, science-based review and public input process assessing the risks of mining in this area. And it undercuts basic environmental and public lands laws, including the century-old Antiquities Act. “Claims that this bill will protect the BWCA are false. Make no mistake: Congressman Emmer’s bill paves the way for toxic pollutants to flow throughout the Rainy River watershed and poison the Boundary Waters forever.”
McCollum, Congressional DFLers Urge Trump Administration to Rescind Proposed Cuts to MinnesotaCare
U.S. Representatives Betty McCollum, Keith Ellison, Rick Nolan, Collin Peterson, and Tim Walz wrote today to Acting Health and Human Services Secretary Don Wright and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma, urging them to rescind their proposed cuts to MinnesotaCare.  Minnesota was recently informed that the State's request for a 1332 waiver was approved, but the approval appears to be coupled with a devastating $369 million cut in funding for MinnesotaCare, Minnesota’s Basic Health Plan (BHP). This cut would have a substantial impact on the state's ability to provide health coverage for more than 100,000 Minnesotans and a serious adverse impact on Minnesota’s state budget. “Minnesota wants to move forward on its reinsurance proposal so families can take advantage of an estimated 20 percent reduction in individual market premiums that they expect as a result of this initiative. We believe a cut to MinnesotaCare to make that happen is unacceptable

First in 2010 and
