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."

Rep. McCollum Introduces the National Park and Wilderness Water Protection Act
  Rep. McCollum Introduces the National Park and Wilderness Water Protection Act   Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) introduced the National Park and Wilderness Water Protection Act, a bill that would afford greater protections from mining related pollution to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and Voyageurs National Park. H.R. 1796 would prohibit all future mining on federally managed lands in the Rainy River Watershed area, and hold existing mining leases on those lands to new, more stringent environmental standards.  “Ensuring that the water flowing into Voyageurs and the BWCA is as clean and clear as the water inside these protected areas will not happen without direct action from Congress and the Obama Administration,” said Congresswoman McCollum. “Advocating for the protection of these two American national treasures has been a priority for Minnesotans for decades, and I am proud to advocate for that priority here in Congress. Voyageurs National
Letter from Congresswoman McCollum to Constituents on National Park and Wilderness Waters Protection Act
Our nation has a long tradition of protecting extraordinary natural treasures.  Next year we will celebrate the centennial of the National Park Service – 100 years of protecting iconic places like Yellowstone, Yosemite and the Grand Canyon.  I view my role in Congress as a steward of these special places and I am committed to protecting our national parks and wilderness areas so that for the next 100 years Americans can enjoy our nation’s natural treasures. Since we live in the “Land of 10,000 Lakes” it is fitting that Minnesotans are the stewards of two of the most unique and unspoiled areas in the United States – Voyageurs National Park and Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.  Together, Voyageurs and the BWCA comprise over 1.3 million acres of federally protected land and water along the Canadian border. It is the pristine water that makes these places special.  Over 40% of Voyageurs is water.  Within the BWCA there are 1,175 lakes and hundreds of miles of streams.

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.

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
