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 Statement on ‘No’ Vote on National Defense Authorization Act
Congresswoman Betty McCollum today voted against H.R. 4909, the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and released the following statement: “Each year, the National Defense Authorization Act provides a framework for our armed forces in the fiscal year ahead. Crafting and considering this legislation is a serious matter, but House Republicans have instead chosen to intentionally violate last year’s Bipartisan Budget Act and abdicate this Congress’ solemn responsibility to sufficiently fund our troops. The legislation ceases funding for Overseas Contingency Operations — the account that pays for our country’s fight against ISIS and other important military efforts — next April, long before the fiscal year ends. It is reckless and irresponsible to place our servicemen and women in the middle of a partisan budget fight just months into the next president’s term. Moreover, in an effort to pander to far-right conservatives, the legislation includes several distrubing ideolo
McCollum Announces Federal Funding for Oakdale Fire Department
Congresswoman Betty McCollum today announced that the Oakdale Fire Department has received a $215,048 grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to purchase new protective equipment for the city’s firefighters. “I am very pleased that the Oakdale Fire Department is receiving this federal funding to buy important safety equipment,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Protecting our first responders must be a top priority. This grant will make it easier for Oakdale’s firefighters to do their job and keep our communities safe.” The funding will allow the Oakdale Fire Department to purchase new self-contained breathing apparatus equipment to replace outdated equipment that is more than a decade old. In December, Congresswoman McCollum wrote to FEMA in strong support of Oakdale’s grant application.
McCollum Offers Amendment to Defund Select Committee to Target Planned Parenthood
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) today offered an amendment in the House Appropriations Committee to ensure no additional taxpayer dollars are spent on the Select Investigative Panel of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, informally known as the Select Committee to Target Planned Parenthood. Congresswoman McCollum’s amendment would have struck funding for the panel from the Legislative Branch appropriations bill; it was defeated on a 28-20 vote. “This panel is a shameful abuse of Congressional power, a complete waste of time, and a total waste of money,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “It is conducting a partisan inquisition with no other purpose than to go after an organization that even Donald Trump says ‘has done very good work for many, many – for millions of women.’” In March, Trump – the presumptive Republican nominee for President – defended the organization, saying, "Look, Planned Parenthood has done very good work for many, many -- for millions of women
McCollum Statement on Republican Abuse of Power on House Floor
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) voted against the Military Construction-VA appropriations bill today and released the following statement: “Republican leadership today abused their power and violated their professed principle of regular order in order to defeat an important amendment that would have protected LGBT Americans from discrimination. The arm twisting that Republican leadership undertook to force members to change their votes has no place in the House of Representatives. I supported the underlying bill in the Appropriations Committee and — as a former member of the Military Construction-VA Appropriations Subcommittee — I understand the importance of this legislation. However, given House Republicans’ blatant abuse of power on the floor today, I had no choice but to oppose this bill.”
