Did you achieve the goals you had at the start of the session?

As a first-term legislator, one of my top priorities was getting to know more of my neighbors and building relationships with new colleagues. When our focus is on the best interests as the state as a whole, we can get things done, even with a divided legislature. Our compromise budget boosts funding for education, including special education and early learning. We protected health care access, lowered taxes for middle-class families and small businesses and enacted new protections against sexual assault. There’s certainly more to do, but our work this session keeps Minnesota moving in the right direction.
