"Their plan ignores the ...

McCollum Commends Supreme Court Decision to Decline Appeals to Marriage Equality Victories
Saint Paul, MN – This morning, the United States Supreme Court allowed lower court rulings in favor of same-sex marriage to stand unchallenged, leading to the immediate recognition of marriage equality in Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia, and Wisconsin. Eventually, this decision will lead to marriage equality in thirty states and the District of Columbia.  In response, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) issued the following statement:  “Today’s action by the Supreme Court is a huge step forward in the movement towards marriage equality.  Loving same-sex couples will now be free to marry in these states. All couples deserve equal recognition under the law, and the Court moved our nation closer to that goal today.”     Congresswoman Betty McCollum serves on the House Appropriations Committee.  She is Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus.   ###
McCollum: Urgency Needed to Combat Ebola in West Africa
St. Paul, MN – As the deadly Ebola epidemic continues to spread in the West African countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, devastating families and communities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) today released new projections showing the potential for the epidemic to explode.  In Liberia and Sierra Leone, the number of cases of Ebola could rise to as many as 1.4 million by January 2015 without immediate actions to contain the disease.  In an equally dire assessment, the International Crisis Group issued a statement today saying, “the hardest hit countries now face widespread chaos and, potentially, collapse. Adding social breakdown to the epidemic would create disaster perhaps impossible to manage.” As co-chair of the Global Health Caucus and a member of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-MN) has been helping to lead the effort for increased U.S. resources to fight this health emergency.
