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 Opposes H.R. 1430, Another Republican Attack on Public Health, Scientific Integrity
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), Ranking Member of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee — which funds the Environmental Protection Agency, spoke today on the House Floor against House Republicans’ H.R. 1430, a bill that prevents the EPA from functioning effectively and using the best scientific data available. “This legislation interferes with the use of sound science and creates obstacles that stop the EPA from enforcing the law. This bill is just one part of President Trump and Congressional Republicans’ attacks on science and our environment,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “We cannot go backwards. I urge my colleagues to reject this bill and other Republican efforts to weaken environmental protections. We must put public health and scientific integrity before polluters' profits.” Full video of Congresswoman McCollum’s remarks is available here.

McCollum Statement on House Republicans Abandoning TrumpCare
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after Speaker Paul Ryan pulled TrumpCare rather than face certain defeat in the House of Representatives: “Congress heard the American people loud and clear: They don’t want Republicans to take away their health care. “I am proud of the way House Democrats stood united to protect our children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities from TrumpCare. Our fight is not over and I will strongly resist all Republican efforts, either by legislation or regulation, to undermine the health care Minnesotans and Americans depend on. “The developments of the past few days, as President Trump and House Republicans retreated in chaos, offer a powerful lesson: when the American people speak out, we can stop President Trump and Republicans’ backwards agenda.”
McCollum Statement on Trump Order Attacking Environmental and Public Health Protections
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), Ranking Member of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement on President Donald Trump’s executive order attacking environmental and public health protections: “President Trump’s executive order abandons American leadership to combat climate change, protect public health, and build the green economy of tomorrow. With this order, the Trump administration has transformed the United States into an environmental rogue state. This is a deeply misguided decision driven by corporate polluters and climate deniers. “This order will lead to increased air pollution, making Americans sicker and causing more premature deaths. At the same time, dismantling the Clean Power Plan and ignoring the costs of climate change will stifle innovation and clean energy technology, costing Americans jobs now and in the future. “President Trump’s order is politics at its worst: putting polluters’ profits befor
