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. "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 ...

Passing $1.1T Appropriations Bill a Victory for Democrats
Today, the House of Representatives voted on the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2016, a $1.1T bill to fund the day-to-day operations of the federal government and make critical investments in our national security and programs that serve the American people. Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-MN) released the following statement regarding her vote in support of this legislation: “The appropriations bill that was passed today is a significant political victory for Democrats in Congress. Republicans hold their largest Congressional majority in 66 years, but Democrats forced the most harmful conservative policy riders out of this bill. Attacks on women’s health, Syrian refugees, and our environment were stripped from this bill because Democrats stood united. This bill demonstrates that Democrats will stand united to defend our priorities and that Republicans are still unable to effectively govern. “In addition to pulling the worst of the worst policy riders from the bill, Democrat
McCollum Floor Speech in Support of Omnibus Appropriations Bill
  Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-MN) offered the Democratic Motion to Recommit on HR1927. The amendment would protect children who were victims of asbestos poisoning in schools from having their personal information exposed publicly. HR1927 limits the ability of victims of asbestos poisoning to seek justice, and threatens to expose their names, exposure history, financial information, and partial social security numbers. The McCollum amendment ensures that children who are victims would not be subject to that disclosure as they and their families pursue justice. “Our children deserve to be protected and parents should have the peace of mind that their children’s privacy is secure,” said Congresswoman McCollum. “As a mother, I cannot imagine the anguish of worrying about my child’s health as they suffer from asbestos-exposure. This bill would then add the burden for parents of worrying that their child’s private information had been posted on a
McCollum Statement on President Obama's Gun Violence Prevention Actions
"I support President Obama doing everything within the power of his office to keep the American people safe by keeping guns out of the hands of those who shouldn’t have them. Our country is facing an epidemic of gun violence and something must be done. This Republican Congress is ignoring this crisis and forced the President to act. Taking all the steps necessary to combat gun violence demands Congressional action.  Responsible gun owners and policy makers need to work together to put a bill on President Obama’s desk that will keep American families and communities safe from gun violence."
