“The people of Minnesota elected us to do the work necessary to pass a budget, pass meaningful legislation to better the state, and get us out a pandemic as smooth as possible. Instead, this session came to a close with more work still left to do. I have been ready since day one to put in the work necessary to support working families, give our schools and students a chance to survive a pandemic, provide equitable health care, take action for a cleaner future, and much more.
