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 ...

Rep. McCollum Statement on Interior Appropriations Subcommittee Markup
Washington, DC – This morning, the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee held a markup of the FY16 funding bill put forth by Chairmen Ken Calvert (R-CA).  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) is the ranking Democratic member on the subcommittee and issued the following opening statement (as prepared for delivery).   “Thank you Mr. Chairman. I appreciate the cooperation exhibited by you and the subcommittee staff as we have attempted to work through the many issues facing the subcommittee in what is yet another difficult budget year. You are to be commended for chairing 14 budget hearings this year where we received testimony from nearly 150 witnesses. We heard repeatedly from these witnesses about the important work our bill is supposed to fund— from conserving our natural and historical resources to protecting the air and water every American breaths and drinks.  Yet the challenges grow and the threats from invasive species, drought, wild fires, and climate cha
McCollum Leads Letter to Secretary of State Kerry Putting Spotlight on Israeli Military Detention and Abuse of Palestinian Children
Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released a letter that she and 18 of her congressional colleagues sent to Secretary of State John Kerry urging the United States to prioritize the human rights of Palestinian children living in the Occupied West Bank in the bilateral relationship with the Government of Israel.  The letter specifically addresses Israel’s on-going military detention of Palestinian children in which they are arrested, interrogated, held incommunicado, and frequently physically abused.  A 2013 report by UNICEF called “Children in Israeli Military Detention” (along with a subsequent 2015 report) highlights the fact that during the previous decade more than 7,000 Palestinian children ages 12 to 17 have been subject to military detention and abuse that violates international human rights standards. Members of Congress signing the letter to Secretary Kerry indicated that while Israel’s security interests are a national security priority of
Rep. McCollum Statement on Interior Appropriations Rider to Delist Gray Wolves
Washington, DC – Today, the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee released their draft bill for FY2016. Included in the legislation is a rider which would require the Secretary of the Interior to delist gray wolves in Wyoming, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan from the list of endangered species. This rider, Section 121 of the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill, provides for the delisting of gray wolves and would prohibit that rule from being subjected to future judicial review.  Last year, a federal judge ordered that gray wolves in Wyoming and the Great Lakes region be returned to the list of endangered species.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN), the ranking Democratic member of the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the delisting of gray wolves. “This rider is a tremendous overreach that would interfere in the federal listing of endangered species.  Our committee’s role is to appropria
Rep. McCollum Statement in Advance of Interior Appropriations Full Committee Markup
"Tomorrow, the House Appropriations Committee will mark up the $30.17 billion FY16 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill. I am the Ranking Member on the Interior and Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, which provides funding for our National Parks, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Environmental Protection Agency and various arts and humanities programs. The bill before the committee will be impossible for me to support. It has some minor increases in funding for investments in our National Parks and for schools and hospitals in Indian Country – which I was glad to see. However, all of these increases are paid for by drastic cuts to environmental protections – most notably programs to ensure that Americans have access to clean water, including drinking water. "The cuts in this bill to the Environmental Protection Agency amount to a war on clean water. Families in California are in the midst of a drought and communities in North Carolina and West Virginia are just a fe
