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 Joins Ongoing Sit-In On House Floor To Demand Vote on Gun Violence Prevention
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) joined 175 House Democrats sitting-in on the House Floor today demanding action on gun violence. Congresswoman McCollum joined the sit-in shortly after 1 p.m., following the conclusion of the House Appropriations Committee markup of the Fiscal Year 2017 Homeland Security appropriations bill. In the markup, Congresswoman McCollum spoke in strong support of the “No Fly, No Buy” amendment that prevents suspected terrorists from purchasing guns or explosives. It was defeated in committee. “Americans expect and deserve a vote on the House floor on gun violence prevention legislation,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “I am proud House Democrats are sitting-in today demanding the House does its job.” In remarks delivered on the House floor during the sit-in, Congresswoman McCollum argued that Congress must vote on common-sense gun reform before the House recesses this week. Congresswoman McCollum has also shared photos and videos from the House Flo
McCollum Vows To Press On To Prevent Gun Violence As Historic 26-Hour Sit-In Ends
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-MN-04) vowed today to continue to demand action on gun violence prevention legislation as Democrats ended their historic 26-hour sit-in on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives. "The American people are demanding action to keep their families and communities safe from gun violence,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Unfortunately, House Republicans refuse to allow an up-or-down vote on bills that prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns and require background checks for all gun purchases.” Congresswoman McCollum and other House Democrats demanded that Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republicans allow an immediate vote on bipartisan, commonsense gun violence prevention bills that help keep guns out of dangerous hands: The bipartisan King-Thompson legislation to expand and strengthen our background check system; and The bipartisan ‘No Fly, No Buy’ bill to prevent suspected terrorists from buying guns and explosives. As Congresswoman McCol
McCollum Meets Award-Winning Irondale High School Robotics Team
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) met today with members of the Irondale High School robotics team visiting Washington after an award-winning performance in the FIRST Robotics Championships, held in St. Louis, Mo. at the end of April. The students — members of FRC 2052, Team KnightKrawler — built a robot that competed in a castle-themed competition that required it to breach defenses, climb towers, and fire foam balls. In their meeting with the Congresswoman, the students and their adult mentors discussed the success of Irondale’s robotics program, the importance of robust support for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) education, and the need to encourage diversity in STEAM. “It was great to meet with these students today and learn more about their passion for robotics,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Their interest in STEAM education was wonderful to see, and I am proud to have this award-winning program in our district.”
McCollum Commemorates 2016 LGBT Pride Month
As Minnesotans celebrate Pride this weekend and people throughout the United States mark LGBT Pride Month, I am once again reminded of how proud I am to be a strong ally of the LGBT community. From my 1993 vote in the Minnesota State House protecting LGBT Minnesotans from workplace discrimination to celebrating last year's Supreme Court decision ushering in marriage equality across America, the progress we have made in advancing the rights of the LGBT community has been remarkable. However, as the Orlando massacre showed, LGBT Americans continue to face discrimination and, at times, violence. In addition to supporting gun violence prevention measures that disarm hate, I have joined my colleagues supporting the Equality Act and many other bills that protect LGBT Americans from unjust discrimination. Those bills include: H.R. 3185: Equality Act — Amends the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include protections that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, and s
