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 Floor Remarks Supporting FY2017 Omnibus
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), Ranking Member of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, delivered the following remarks on the House Floor today before the House passed the Fiscal Year 2017 government spending bill on a 309-118 vote: “I rise today in support of this bipartisan compromise to fund our federal government for the remainder of this Fiscal Year. “It is frustrating that the Trump Administration inserted itself into our Congressional funding negotiations last year, which unnecessarily delayed this bill for seven months. That delay created uncertainty and instability for the local governments, schools, businesses, and families we represent. “Nevertheless, the final funding package we have under consideration today is a win for Minnesotans and Americans. Democrats stood strong and united. That is why this bill does not include any funding for President Trump's wasteful border wall, which he wanted to pay for with cuts to priorities here
McCollum Statement on Newest Version of Trumpcare
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement on House Republicans’ Trumpcare bill, slated for a House vote this afternoon: “Every family, senior, and person with a disability in Minnesota will have their guaranteed benefits, coverage, and protections stripped away by this dangerous and cruel House Republican bill. It's not surprising that Republicans and President Trump want to provide the richest Americans and big corporations with a win as they destroy the Affordable Care Act.  For working people and every day Americans, this bill takes us backwards. “Even though Minnesota’s uninsured rate at a historic low, this bill takes health insurance away from hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans, creates a multi-billion dollar budget hole for our state, and caps Medicaid coverage for vulnerable citizens, especially children, seniors, and people with disabilities. This bill is a total loser for Minnesota. Minnesotans can count on me to be a no vote this

Because we stood strong for our values, this bill protects our environment, keeps our commitments to Native Americans, and safeguards our natural and cultural heritage,” Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) said. “Providing adequate funding for our priorities and removing Republican provisions that would have eroded environmental protections is a win for Minnesotans, Americans, and the values that we all share.” Protecting Our Environment The FY2017 omnibus bill includes $8.058 billion for the Environmental Protection Agency, prote
McCollum Statement on House Passage of Trumpcare
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) released the following statement after House Republicans passed Trumpcare: “The passage of Trumpcare is a reflection of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans’ values: they will abandon the sick and the vulnerable to give tax breaks to billionaires and big corporations. “This disastrous bill is an all-out attack on children, families, seniors, and people with disabilities. No Senate amendments will ever change that. As we move forward with the legislative process, I will keep fighting for affordable, quality health care for all Americans. We must protect our care.”
