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 ...

Rep. McCollum Statement on FY16 Interior and Environment Appropriations Bill
Washington, DC – This afternoon, the FY16 Interior and Environment Appropriations bill was pulled from the floor just hours before it was scheduled for a vote. Last night, the bill was amended by Republican leadership to include a provision that would allow the sale and display of the Confederate battle flag in National Parks. Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement: “The Interior and Environment Appropriations bill speaks to our priorities as a nation.  This bill is meant to fund the protection of some of our nation’s best ideas, including critical investments in our public health, preservation of our public lands, and a strong trust relationship with Native Americans.  It is supposed to fund efforts to ensure that Americans are able to breathe clean air and have access to drinkable water, and to confront the challenges of a changing climate.  The Republican Interior Appropriations bill that was pulled from the floor today does none of those thing
Rep. McCollum Statement on Federal Court Decision on Washington Football Team Name Trademark Case
  Washington, DC – This morning, the United States District Court Eastern District of Virginia upheld the cancellation of the Washington NFL franchise’s trademark for their team name.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum issued the following statement: “In our society, words and symbols matter. There are images in our culture that evoke strong memories of our history, which can sometimes be painful and ugly. Our federal government should not protect trademarks for businesses that use racist words and symbols for profit.  “The name of the Washington football team is a dictionary defined racial slur.  It is a hurtful and ugly word which diminishes and disrespects Native American people.  “Today’s court decision is a good step towards ensuring that this hateful slur is removed from professional football.  I applaud the court’s decision and I will continue to stand with all of the dedicated activists in the Native American community and their allies who have worked on this iss
McCollum Condemns GOP Interior-Environment Amendment to Reinstate Confederate Flag at National Park Service Cemeteries and Concessions
Congresswoman Betty McCollum, the lead Democrat of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, issued the following statement responding to the Republican leadership’s last minute amendment offered tonight to the FY2016 funding bill protecting the Confederate flag’s status in National Park Service cemeteries and concessions.  The GOP amendment would reverse three amendments approved by the House yesterday on voice votes banning the Confederate flag from being displayed in cemeteries and sold in concessions under the control of the National Park Service. “The Confederate flag is a symbol of slavery, racism, and hate that should never be celebrated or sold in our National Parks.  For House Republicans it appears the cost of getting the votes to pass this terrible Interior-Environment Appropriations bill is to literally wrap themselves in this banner of racism. This bill is already a polluters dream, now the majority wants to make the bill truly toxic with this ame
Nuclear Deal with Iran Makes America and the World Safer
  (Washington, DC) - Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement in response to the announcement of a diplomatic deal between the United States, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, China, Russia, and Iran to limit Iran’s ability to develop nuclear weapon. “Denying Iran the ability to continue to develop a nuclear weapon with this verifiable agreement is a diplomatic triumph which enhances U.S. and global security. This agreement is the only alternative to an escalating, dangerous nuclear arms race that threatens the security of the American people.” “Unfortunately, critics in Congress, along with Republican presidential candidates, have started down the dangerous path of working to undermine this agreement to score partisan political points.  If allowed to succeed, these hardliners threaten our national security by increasing the probability that Iran will obtain a nuclear weapon.” “With regard to Israel, the U.S. has an unshakable strategic comm
