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 Statement on House GOP Vote to Fund Trump’s Sham "Election Integrity Commission"
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, released the following statement after House Republicans on the committee defeated her amendment to defund President Donald Trump’s sham “election integrity commission”: “This commission exists to justify President Trump’s conspiracy theories and to advance a partisan agenda that will make it harder for some Americans to vote. I am deeply disappointed that House Republicans continue to cover for President Trump and support wasting taxpayer dollars on his sham commission. “We should be strengthening our democracy by making it easier for our citizens to register and cast ballots. Today’s vote shows that President Trump and Republicans want to take us in the other direction. As Americans, we must stay vigilant to defend voting rights and encourage universal voter participation.” The McCollum amendment would have barred the use of any federal funds for the so-called Presid
McCollum Opposes House GOP’s Interior-Environment Appropriations Bill
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.), Ranking Member of the House Interior-Environment Appropriations Subcommittee, voiced her opposition to House Republicans’ fiscal year 2018 Interior-Environment Appropriations bill during today’s Subcommittee mark-up. “I am deeply disappointed that House Republicans’ fiscal year 2018 Interior-Environment bill cuts funding by $824 million relative to the fiscal year 2017 enacted level,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “The bill’s overall funding level is too low and threatens many important programs that protect our nation’s natural and cultural resources.” Congresswoman McCollum drew particular attention to the bill’s sharp cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency. House Republicans’ bill slashes the EPA by $528 million, on top of a reduction of $2.2 billion since fiscal year 2010. “The cuts proposed in this bill would further undermine EPA’s ability to protect human health and the health of our environment,” Co
McCollum Proposes Amendment to Defund Trump’s Sham Election Commission
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) will offer an amendment tomorrow in the House Appropriations Committee to bar the use of any federal funds for President Donald Trump’s sham “election integrity” commission. “President Trump’s sham election commission exists to justify his outrageous falsehoods about ‘illegal voting’ and to further the Republican Party’s voter suppression agenda,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “This commission is an affront to our democracy and a waste of taxpayer dollars. The American people should not have to foot the bill to indulge President Trump’s Twitter rants and conspiracy theories.” The commission, formally known as Presidential Advisory Committee on Election Integrity, was established after President Trump repeatedly peddled outrageous claims that about illegal voting during the 2016 presidential election — an election he lost by nearly three million votes. These claims have been roundly rejected by election officials and ex
House Appropriations Committee Adopts McCollum-Cole Amendment on Tribal Justice Funding
The House Appropriations Committee today adopted an amendment offered by Representatives Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) and Tom Cole (R-Okla.) that protects tribal nations across the country from a drastic cut to their criminal and civil justice funds. “As Members of Congress, we have an obligation to meet the safety and justice needs of tribal nations. This amendment ensures that we restore the dedicated funding for tribal justice systems and permit tribal nations to be part of the substantial increase this bill creates for the Crime Victims Fund,” Representative McCollum said. “I want to thank my colleagues on both sides of the aisle, especially my Congressional Native American Caucus co-chair Representative Tom Cole, for working with me on this important amendment.” The McCollum-Cole Amendment, which modifies language in the Commerce-Justice-Science appropriations bill, passed on a voice vote. “It is sad, but true, that Indian country has some of the highest crime rates in
