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 Funding to Clean Up Unexploded Ordnance in Laos
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after President Obama announced $90 million in funding for the clean-up of unexploded American ordnance in Laos: “More than 40 years after American bombing in Laos ended, unexploded ordnance dropped by the United States continues to threaten the lives of Laotians and hamper economic development throughout the country. For years, I have advocated for increased resources to ensure the United States meets its moral obligation to clean up these bombs. In March, I led a letter to President Obama urging him to provide more funding for this important endeavor. President Obama’s announcement today of $90 million in funding for unexploded ordnance clean-up in Laos over the next three years is a very important step to meeting our country’s moral obligation to the Laotian people. In the years to come, I will continue to push for sustained funding to address this legacy of war once and for all.”
McCollum Statement on House Passage of Commission on Native Children Act
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after the House passed the House amendment to S. 246, the Alyce Spotted Bear and Walter Soboleff Commission on Native Children Act by voice vote: “I am very pleased that the House recognized the importance of understanding and addressing the needs of Native American children by passing this bipartisan bill today. With Native American children and youth facing higher rates of poverty, violence, and foster care placement and considerably worse health outcomes and educational attainment than other children, it is clear our country has more work to do to support Native American young people.  That is why bringing tribal leaders and tribal youth together within this Commission to help identify solutions is so important. I was proud to sponsor the House version of this bill with my friend, Representative Tom Cole (R-O.K.), and I appreciate Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.)’s leadership on this issue in the Senate. I
As NFL Opens Season, Congresswoman Renews Call for Washington Football Team to Change The Mascot
WASHINGTON — Ahead of this evening’s National Football League season opener, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), co-chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus, issued the following statement on the Washington football team’s racist name and mascot: “The National Football League starts another season tonight in which Commissioner Roger Goodell and team owners are profiting from a racist team name and mascot that mocks Native Americans as nineteenth-century caricature.  The NFL’s Washington Red****s team name and mascot is a testament to racial bigotry and commercial exploitation.  No other race, ethnicity or religious group in America is treated with such disrespect.  I am calling on NFL players and fans of all races to stand up and speak out against the NFL’s racist treatment of Native Americans. It’s time to change the mascot.”

The Zika virus is being transmitted by mosquitoes right inside the United States now. Parts of Miami are under Zika-related travel warnings. The total number of American cases has climbed to almost 17,000, including 1,600 expecting mothers. Six months ago, the public health experts told us what they needed to address Zika. House Republicans have ignored those experts. Now, the Centers for Disease Control and state public health agencies are running out of money for Zika response. The CDC Director tells us that the money to fight this disease will be gone by the end of Sept
