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 ...

Constituents worried about rollercoaster stock markets, near government default, a potentially broken ...

McCollum Applauds EPA Grant to St. Paul Port Authority
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) today applauded the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to award $200,000 in federal funds to the St. Paul Port Authority for brownfield restoration. The EPA grant will help address lead and petroleum contamination on the 9.9-acre former streetcar and maintenance facility that is being transformed into the new home of Minnesota United FC. It is part of a national program of EPA grants for cleanup and redevelopment of brownfield sites. “The EPA’s brownfield funds are critical to redeveloping polluted urban land in communities like St. Paul,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “I am delighted that St. Paul is receiving these funds, which will help revitalize this property and allow it to become a new hub for economic opportunities in downtown St. Paul.”
McCollum Opens Floor Debate on FY2017 Interior-Environment Appropriations Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) delivered the following remarks as general debate began on the FY2017 Interior-Environment appropriations bill: Mr. Chairman, I yield myself such time as I may consume. I would like to thank Chairman Calvert for the warm birthday wishes, and the Chairman and his staff for their open and collaborative approach. I would also like to thank the wonderful staff on the Democratic side who will be helping me this evening. This subcommittee has a challenging portfolio of issues and I commend the Chairman’s efforts to find solutions in yet another difficult budget year. This year, the subcommittee held 14 budget hearings, four of which involved American Indians and Alaska Natives. The testimony provided by the 209 witnesses clearly articulated the serious need for programs and services under this subcommittee’s jurisdiction. Unfortunately, the FY 2017 subcommittee allocation is $64 million less than last year’s enacted level. This means the needs

I want to again extend my heartfelt condolences to Mr. Castile’s loved ones. My Congressional responsibilities require me to be in Washington today, but I too will say a prayer asking for peace and healing for Mr. Castile’s family and for our entire community. Mr. Castile’s death is a terrible tragedy and the ongoing investigation must provide Mr. Castile’s family and the public with the facts and accountability appropriate to those facts.  It is my hope that the facts will also lead to public policy action that prevents tragedies like
McCollum: House-Passed Interior-Environment Appropriations Bill Fails American People
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), the Ranking Member of the Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, released the following statement after the House approved the FY2017 Interior-Environment appropriations bill on a 231-196 vote: “I led Democrats opposing the Interior-Environment appropriations bill today because it fails to meet some of Congress’ most basic responsibilities: protecting the public health and safety of the American people and preserving our environment for future generations. To cater to right-wing ideologues and polluters’ special interests, Republicans loaded up this bill with damaging cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency and harmful riders that undo environmental regulations. Sadly, Republicans even bragged about how deep they cut the agency that is responsible for ensuring that our air and water is clean. While I support some elements of the bill — including robust funding for programs important to Native Americans and support for our
