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 Floor Statement Opposing Anti-Environment Riders, Including Mining Near the BWCA
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) made the following statement on the House Floor in opposition to anti-environment riders, including the Emmer amendment to allow dangerous mining near Minnesota's Boundary Waters, to H.R. 3354, the fiscal year 2018 Interior-Environment appropriations bill: Mr. Chairman, I rise in opposition.  I reserve the balance of my time. I am opposed to all the amendments included in this en bloc.  Many of them use offsets from accounts in the Environmental Protection Agency or Fish and Wildlife Service that are already severely underfunded. I am particularly troubled by one amendment in this group that threatens our nation’s most visited wilderness area. Let me tell you why I oppose the Emmer Amendment: The Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, located in northern Minnesota, is one of the last truly wild places in America. These 1.1 million acres of unspoiled woodlands and more than 1,000 pristine lakes are beloved by adventurers, canoers, an
McCollum Opposes Anti-Environment Riders, Including Latest Attempt to Allow Dangerous Mining Next to Minnesota’s BWCA
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), Ranking Member of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, today opposed a Republican amendment package that included an amendment to allow mining in the Superior National Forest adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. The amendment, offered by Congressman Tom Emmer, prevents the United States Forest Service from protecting federal land in the Superior National Forest adjacent to the BWCA and Voyageurs National Park from dangerous sulfide-ore copper mining. It was packaged with other amendments that mostly slash funding for the Environmental Protection Agency and otherwise restrict its activities. “All of the amendments in this package are harmful, but the Boundary Waters amendment affects Minnesota most directly and negatively,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “It mandates that dangerous copper-sulfide ore mining will be allowed in the watershed, regardless of the conclusions of the Forest Service’s en
McCollum Floor Statement Opposing 8-Bill Appropriations Package, Cuts to Interior-Environment Programs
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) delivered the following remarks on the House Floor opposing H.R. 3354, House Republicans' eight-bill omnibus appropriations package, and particularly its deep cuts to environmental protection: Thank you, Mr. Speaker.  I would like to thank Chairman Calvert and his staff for their open and collaborative approach. This subcommittee has a challenging portfolio of issues and I commend the Chairman’s efforts to find solutions in yet another difficult budget year. Unfortunately, the FY 2018 Interior-Environment subcommittee allocation is $824 million less than last year’s enacted level. This devastating cut to the allocation shortchanges the protection of our nation’s natural and cultural resources, and has real consequences for American families and communities. Adequate funding for the Interior, Environment Division is critical at a time when the Trump Administration is attacking the science behind climate change and rolling back regula
McCollum Opposes House GOP’s 8-Bill Appropriations Package, Cuts to Interior-Environment Programs
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), Ranking Member of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, spoke on the House Floor today in strong opposition to House Republicans’ eight-bill appropriations package and its devastating $824 million cut to the programs funded in the Interior-Environment bill.  “The devastating cut to the Interior-Environment allocation shortchanges the protection of our nation’s natural and cultural resources and has real consequences for American families and communities,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Slashing the Environmental Protection Agency by $534 million will severely impact the agency’s ability to protect human health and safety and ensure clean air and clean water for all Americans.” House Republicans’ eight-bill appropriations package cuts funding for the Interior-Environment programs by $824 million and forces the EPA to shoulder 65 percent of that cut. The bill’s attack on the EPA comes on top of more th
