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 ...

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.

Constituents worried about rollercoaster stock markets, near government default, a potentially broken ...

Congresswoman Betty McCollum sent the following letter to the Chairman Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) and Ranking Member Alan Lowenthal (D-Calif.) opposing a discussion draft offered by Rep. Tom Emmer (R-Minn.) that would rewrite existing environmental and public lands protections to allow Chilean conglomerate Antofagasta to mine next to Minnesota's Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness: Dear Chairman Gosar and Ranking Member Lowenthal: I write to express my strong opposition to the discussion draft proposed by Representative Tom Emmer considered today, July 27, in the Energy and Mineral Resources Subcommittee of the House Natural Resources Committee.  This proposed legislation would undercut existing environmental and public lands laws to allow a Chilean mining conglomerate to conduct dangerous sulfide-ore coppering mining adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

McCollum, Environmental Leaders Oppose Emmer Bill to Mine Next to BWCA
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) today submitted a letter to the House Natural Resources Committee strongly opposing a legislative proposal by Rep. Tom Emmer that would pave the way for dangerous mining next to Minnesota’s Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. “This proposed legislation would undercut existing environmental and public lands laws to allow a Chilean mining conglomerate to conduct dangerous sulfide-ore coppering mining adjacent to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness,” Congresswoman McCollum wrote. “As Members of Congress, we have an obligation to be good stewards of our nation’s natural resources. It would be a grave mistake to allow dangerous mining to take place on the edge of the Boundary Waters, one of the last wild places in our country.” The House Natural Resources Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy and Mineral Resources today held a hearing on Emmer’s proposal, which entirely short-circuits a careful environmental review process, re

McCollum Statement on Collapse of Senate Trumpcare
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after the Senate rejected the so-called “skinny repeal” Trumpcare amendment: “Trumpcare would have caused untold pain for millions of Americans. The American people made their voices heard and House and Senate Democrats stood strong against this legislation, which is why it failed last night. “Beginning today, Congressional Republicans must work with Democrats for bipartisan health care solutions that build on the success of the Affordable Care Act. And the Trump administration must stop sabotaging this law and making it harder for families to get the care they need. “My Democratic colleagues and I are ready to get to work, find solutions, and ensure that every American has affordable, quality health care.”
