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 Terrorist Attacks in France
"We stand united with the people of France as they comfort the victims and mourn those murdered in this barbaric act of terrorism. This brutal crime demands unified and coordinated action by all nations to eliminate extremists and those who promote or profit from this barbarism. The Paris attacks clearly demonstrates a significant escalation by the Islamic State to kill innocent people indiscriminately which puts our country risk. My sympathies are with the French people today but I am more focused than ever on the necessity of eliminating the scourge of ISIS and those who support these terrorists."  
McCollum Statement on Passage of Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015
Washington, DC – Today, the House of Representatives reached an agreement on a deal that would provide relief from the need to raise our nation’s debt ceiling until 2017 and lays the groundwork for a budget agreement that lifts the caps on defense and discretionary spending. The bill also solves critical issues regarding Medicare Part B recipients and Social Security Disability Insurance. Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement regarding that vote: “For months House Republicans have had us on a path to a government shut down and defaulting on our nation’s debt, potentially catastrophic events for middle class families and our nation’s economy.  This bipartisan agreement circumvents the irresponsible and dangerous stranglehold imposed by Tea Party extremists, prevents chaos in the economy, and allows for stable investments in domestic programs and national defense. This is a good and responsible agreement which has my support.  It also prevents a
Statement on HR 2494 - The Global Anti Poaching Act
Illegal poaching has hit a crisis point for many of the world’s most iconic species.  Nearly 100 elephants are being slaughtered each day by ivory poachers.  The black market sale of rhino horn and trafficking in infant gorillas is driving these species to the brink of extinction.  H.R. 2494, the Global Anti-Poaching Act, takes critical steps to strengthen the punishments for poaching and wildlife tracking. The United States is a leader in the fight to protect endangered and threatened species around the world, and today’s legislation continues that legacy.  This bill will ensure that the full strength of the U.S. criminal justice system can be brought to bear against those who seek to kill, trade or otherwise profit from the furs, pelts, skins or other body parts of protected species.  The profits from this illegal trade are often used to fund terrorist or criminal activities, making the tougher enforcements in this bill an issue of national security as well.  Additionally,
McCollum Joins Grijalva for Forum on Protecting Native American Sacred Sites
“Oak Flat is a sacred site for the Apache people,” said Rep. Betty McCollum (D-Minn.), the co-chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus. “A great injustice was done when this holy and protected place was given away to a foreign corporation in last year’s National Defense Authorization Act.  Today, my colleagues, hundreds of Americans and I are speaking out against this injustice and voicing our opposition to policies that disrespect public lands and limit the religious liberty of Native American tribes.”
