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 Normalizing U.S.-Cuba Relations
Washington, DC – Today, President Barack Obama announced a new course for American relations with Cuba. Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement regarding that announcement: “Today is a historic day that marks a new beginning in relations between the U.S. and Cuba.  I congratulate President Obama for his efforts to normalize diplomatic relations with Cuba and to begin easing the trade restrictions between our countries. I would also like to thank the President for his efforts to secure the release of USAID worker Alan Gross from prison in Cuba.  “While traveling to Cuba this past summer, I saw the tremendous opportunities that exist between the people of our two countries to find common ground in pursuit of human rights, in the service of a democratic transformation and economically.  The connections between the American people and the Cuban people are far stronger than any differences. Normalized diplomatic relations will allow us to focus on achie
Congresswoman McCollum Statement on Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015
Washington, DC – Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) released the following statement in advance of the vote on the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015: “Today, funding for the federal government runs out if we do not pass an appropriations bill or a continuing resolution. I want to vote for a bipartisan appropriations bill that keeps our federal government running because there are a number of things included that I have worked hard to pass. However, I cannot vote for this omnibus bill. Republicans have corrupted the appropriations process by secretly inserting provisions that put Wall Street and billionaires ahead of the middle class. “Our appropriations process should be about making our federal government work in a way that meets the needs of every American.  We spend months debating various bills to determine how best to fund critical programs and services. Republican leadership is ignoring that process by inserting last-minute provisions that give
Smith/McCollum Global Food Security Act of 2014 Passes House in Bipartisan Vote
Washington, DC – Today, the United States House of Representatives voted to pass the Global Food Security Act of 2014, a bill which would take significant steps to fight hunger worldwide by empowering and supporting small-scale local farmers.  Congresswoman Betty McCollum (D-MN) was the lead Democratic sponsor of the bill which was authored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ). With over 800 million people worldwide suffering from hunger, this critical investment will improve the health of millions, help to stabilize developing nations, and improve American security. “We cannot sit by and do nothing as 800 million hungry people suffer, parents are forced watch their children go hungry, and far too many die from malnutrition” said Congresswoman McCollum. “Human dignity, decency, and our own national security demands that we support and sustain this important investment in agriculture development and nutrition. “This bill is about partnering with hardworking farmers – who are mostly w
Rep. McCollum Statement on President Obama's Immigration Executive Action
"There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants in our country. We go to church together, shop in the same stores, our children attend school together and they are members of our community.  These undocumented immigrants are forced to live in the shadows of our society even though many of their children are U.S. citizens.  The current immigration system is not tenable and something must be done now. Over the past seven years, Republicans in Congress have not only refused to rectify this broken system, but have done everything possible to block immigration reform.  For example, in 2007, President George W. Bush pursued comprehensive immigration reform which I supported.  Congressional Republicans refused to work with their own conservative president.  In June 2013, Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Senate came together to pass a bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill.  Since then, House Republicans have refused to act on that bill or even allow it to be voted on.
