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 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 Introduces Bipartisan Legislation to Improve Access to Health Care for Native Americans
  Washington, DC – This week, Rep. Betty McCollum (D-MN) and Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) introduced the Native Contract and Rate Expenditure (CARE) Act (H.R. 4843), a bill that will provide an additional 250,000 physician services annually for Native Americans through payment reforms within the Indian Health Service (IHS).  “Our nation has a legal and moral responsibility to provide for the health care of Native Americans.  For far too long, Congress has failed to meet that responsibility and that needs to change,” said Congresswoman McCollum.  “There is an infamous warning in Indian Country: 'Don't get sick after June.'  The current system causes IHS to consistently run out of money for referred care months before the end of the fiscal year, denying Native people critical health care services for extended periods of time. “By paying health care providers the Medicare-rate, rather than the provider billed rates, IHS will be able to double the number of physician services provid
