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 House Passage of Continuing Resolution
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), a member of the House Appropriations Committee, released the following statement after the House passed a continuing resolution that funds the government through December 9: “Tonight I joined with my colleagues to fulfill our most basic responsibility: funding our government for the next 10 weeks. While not perfect, the continuing resolution includes a significant victory for American families by providing $1.1 billion in funding to combat the Zika virus. In addition, the House voted earlier today to authorize $170 million to address the Flint water crisis, an important first step in ensuring the children and families of Flint receive the resources they need. These victories were only possible because House Democrats stood firm and insisted that Congress act on these public health emergencies. “Unfortunately, however, the passage of a short-term continuing resolution means that the American economy is once again denied the certainty that
McCollum Helps Break Ground on Rondo Commemorative Plaza
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) joined state and local elected officials and many community leaders today to break ground on the Rondo Commemorative Plaza. In one of the most painful chapters in St. Paul’s and Minnesota’s history, Rondo — a thriving and vibrant African-American neighborhood — was destroyed block by block, street by street, and brick by brick for a highway, without any consideration of the impact on the families who lived there. The Rondo Commemorative Plaza aims to preserve and promote the cultural legacy of the Rondo neighborhood through displays and multimedia presentations. “Rondo Commemorative Plaza will be a place to remember the vibrant Rondo neighborhood, a proud and thriving community that was ripped apart during construction of Interstate Highway 94 more than four decades ago,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “I am proud to support this project, which will provide educational displays and serve as a gathering place for people to learn, appr
McCollum Statement on Twin Metals’ Parent Company’s Environmental Violations
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement following reports that Antofagasta, the Chilean parent company of Twin Metals, could face up to a $24 million fine for violating Chile’s environmental protection laws: “The revelation of Antofagasta’s environmental violations at a Chilean mine is yet another reason to reject this company’s plans to conduct dangerous mining in Minnesota’s Rainy River Drainage Basin. “Sulfide-ore copper mining is an inherently risky activity and would likely lead to permanent damage to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Voyageurs National Park. Antofagasta’s poor environmental record conducting this type of mining in its home country exacerbates that risk. “The Obama administration should act quickly to prevent Antofagasta from conducting sulfide-ore copper mining in the Rainy River Drainage Basin. We simply cannot allow a company that shows a reckless disregard for environmental regulations to mine next
McCollum Applauds COPS Grant to Upper Midwest Community Policing Institute
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) applauded a $100,000 grant to the New Brighton-based Upper Midwest Community Policing Institute to train law enforcement officers to de-escalate situations involving military veterans in crisis. “Our country has an obligation to ensure that all of our veterans have the support and resources they need. As part of that commitment, we must ensure our law enforcement officers have the skills and capacity to safely de-escalate crisis situations involving veterans,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “This grant will help our police better assist veterans and their families with the unique difficulties they may encounter in their transition to civilian life.” The grant, provided by the Department of Justice’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program, will fund classroom training for law enforcement, fire, EMS personnel, 911 dispatchers, and campus and hospital security that have regular contact with returning service members in crisis.
