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 Hosts City of New Brighton and U.S. Army for Meeting to Explore Options for Future Funding of City’s Contaminated Groundwater Recovery System
Washington, DC – Yesterday, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) hosted a meeting between the City of New Brighton and the U.S. Army to attempt to resolve differences related to the Army’s future funding obligations for treatment and de-contamination of the City of New Brighton’s groundwater. Attending the meeting were New Brighton Mayor Dave Jacobsen, City Manager Dean Lotter, and the city’s legal counsel.  The Army was also represented at the meeting. In a 1988 litigation settlement agreement between the City of New Brighton and the federal government, the Army accepted responsibility for contaminating city’s groundwater with trichloroethylene (TCE), a known carcinogen[1], originating from the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP).  Since that settlement agreement the federal government has paid the city to operate the New Brighton Contaminated Groundwater Recovery System (NBCGRS) to eliminate TCE from drinking water.  In 1992, the Army paid $17 million to New Bright
Congresswoman McCollum Statement on Anniversary of the Violence Against Women Act
Washington, DC – One year ago today, President Barack Obama signed the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (P.L. 113-4). Congresswoman Betty McCollum issued the following statement on the anniversary:  “It is heartbreaking that domestic and sexual violence still plague so many women and families in this country.  I was proud to have language adopted in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act that provided Tribal nations with additional tools to ensure the safety of Native women and children. The bill also included my provision to address and prevent child marriage in developing nations.  “Crimes of violence against women and girls hurt not only the victims, but their families and their communities.  A year ago, we took a big step in the right direction but our work is not done yet. We must do more to ensure that the women who do so much for our communities and our nation are safe from violence and harm.”       ####  
McCollum Responds to Continued Use of Racist Native American Mascot By NFL Owner Dan Snyder
Washington, DC – Dan Snyder, the owner of the NFL’s Washington football team, released a letter last night which continued to ignore calls to change his team’s racist name while announcing a public relations gambit targeting Native Americans. Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement in response:    “For almost eighty years the National Football League and its Washington franchise have exploited a racist Indian caricature, turning it into a billion dollar brand while completely ignoring the needs of real Native American children, families, and elders. “Now, team owner Dan Snyder wants to keep profiting from his team’s racist brand and use those profits to attempt to buy the silence of Native Americans with a foundation that is equal parts public relations scheme and tax deduction. “The NFL and its Washington franchise’s legacy of exploitation of Native American identity is real as has been noted by tribal leaders, national Native American or
McCollum Releases Letter Supporting Women of Afghanistan
Washington, DC – Today, Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) and 30 of her colleagues in the United States House of Representatives released a letter to the women of Afghanistan pledging their support for policies and programs that empower women and girls in the country.  The letter was issued just weeks before the election of a new president in Afghanistan.  “Over the last 13 years, Afghan society has been completely transformed. In 2001, women had no rights, were prohibited from attending school or holding public office, and had almost no access to basic health care. They were prisoners in their own country,” said Representative McCollum. “Today, Afghan women are helping to build their country’s future.  Girls represent 40% of the children in primary school and 28% of the seats in parliament are held by women.” “These changes have had a remarkable positive impact on Afghan society, but the gains women have made are still new and fragile. It is important that these gai
