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 Statement on Introduction of the Global Food Security Act of 2015
Washington, DC – Yesterday, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) joined Republican co-author Chris Smith (R-NJ) in introducing the Global Food Security Act of 2015. Congresswoman McCollum released the following statement regarding the legislation:  “Improving global health starts with having access to healthy, nutritious foods – especially for our children. The Global Food Security Act will continue to enhance global food security by assisting small-scale farmers in increasing yields, putting more food on their family’s table, and selling more food in the market. This investment in agriculture development and nutrition will help the more than 800 million people worldwide who suffer from chronic hunger. “My colleague Chris Smith understands that these are bipartisan priorities, and I look forward to working with him to pass this bill through the House of Representatives.”     ###   Congresswoman Betty McCollum serves as the ranking Democrat on the House Appropriations In
McCollum Statement on Passage of Clean DHS Funding Bill
Washington - Today, Congress passed a clean, year-long funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum released the following statement after its passage.  “For months, my democratic colleagues and I have been urging a vote on a clean, long-term funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security. I am pleased that Republican leadership came to their senses and allowed that vote today.  Why it took this long to get a clean up or down vote is beyond me, as obviously the bill enjoyed the support it needed to pass.  The last several weeks and months of politicking have accomplished nothing, aside from creating uncertainty around our country’s preparedness against attacks.  “The good news is that the hundreds of thousands of DHS employees across the country, and the 1500 employed here in Minnesota will have certainty about their paychecks. These women and men do important work to keep us safe against threats in our communities, like the one a

For tribal nations in Minnesota, wild rice is a traditional crop with important economic, sacred and cultural significance. Let me be clear, without full consultation and consent with impa
McCollum Statement on Netanyahu Speech to Joint Session of Congress
Washington - Today, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) issued the following statement after his address: “Today from the floor of the United States House of Representatives the world heard the Israeli prime minister reject diplomacy and flagrantly undermine U.S. diplomatic efforts to the cheers of Congress.  It was more campaign rally than serious policy speech which was the prime minister’s goal to begin with. The P5+1 negotiations with Iran are critical to the national security of the United States and I fully support the Obama administration’s diplomatic efforts to deny Iran the ability to acquire a nuclear weapon.”
