SAINT PAUL, Minn. — Senate DFL Leader Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, released the following statement in response to the 2020 Senate Republican agenda.
“Republicans launched their 2020 agenda today with no mention of the work they’ve been doing to block progress for Minnesotans. They’ve refused time and again to even give important bills a public hearing – proposals that could increase access to affordable health care, help students succeed in school, make our communities safer, and ensure Minnesota workers have access to paid family and medical leave have been ignored by Senate Republicans.
“DFLers have worked hard in the Senate, House, and Governor’s office to get our state back on track after years of deficits that resulted in taking money from our schools just to balance the budget. The Senate Republican ‘vision’ could undo all the work we’ve done together.”
