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.

Congresswoman Betty McCollum (DFL-Minn.) called today for Speaker Paul Ryan and House Republican leaders to bring Congress back from recess to approve a bipartisan, Senate-passed Zika response bill that will help keep American families safe amid this public health emergency. The need for urgent action was underscored this week by reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Department of Defense about the spread of the Zika virus in the United States and among American servicemembers. “Now that we know mosquitoes are transmitting the Zika virus inside the United States, it is obvious that we are facing a public health emergency,” Congresswoman McCollum said. “Public health experts have told Congress what resources they need to help keep American families and children safe. House Republicans should bring Congress back from its seven-week recess so we can approve the Senate-passed bill that provides $1.1 billion to confront the Zika virus.” The Senate appr
