Accomplishments

Key Legislation Passed in 2019:

This bill allows trained emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to provide community follow up home care for patients after emergency room visits. Current law permits paramedics, but not EMTs to carry out this practice. My bill, which has been signed into law, also expands paramedics’ ability to now incorporate telemedicine as a part of their practice.

After years of work, the Dennis A. Groth Memorial Bridge has finally been passed into law. This bridge is marked at U.S. Highway 52 over Dakota County State-Aid Highway 42, known as 145th Street, within the city of Rosemount. It is designated as Warrant Officer Dennis A. Groth Memorial Bridge.

I sponsored legislation that was included in the final budget to dedicate more funding for long overdue improvements to the Minnesota Zoo. In addition to improvements, these funds will support education and accessibility programs. The zoo is an important economic contributor to our area, providing jobs and drawing people from all over Minnesota to visit.

When someone has experienced trauma, their ability to learn, achieve, and succeed are put at risk, and our budget addresses this. My bill, which would require colleges to notify victims of sexual assault that legal advocacy services are available to them, was included in the final higher education budget bill and signed into law.

Developed by the University of Minnesota College of Education and Human Development, the Minnesota Principals Academy is a program that enables cohorts of practicing principals to put leadership best practices from education, business, military, and other fields to work on behalf of their students and schools. Through my advocacy, this important program was able to receive funding in 2019.

Legislation I Am Working On:

Under this program, families would be able to request one Minnesotan or American flag that is flown over the Capitol, and receive it in commemoration of their lost loved one, free of charge. Unfortunately, the legislation was not included in the final budget, but I’ll continue to advocate for it in the future.

This bill would enable school districts to hire additional school support services personnel including licensed school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, school nurses, and chemical dependency counselors. Although this bill was not incorporated into the final education budget bill, safe school supplement aid was included. I’ll keep working on this important bill moving forward.

2020 is a bonding year at the Capitol, which means that the legislature will be appropriating money for long-term projects in communities across Minnesota. This session I will be advocating for funding to be allocated to the Minnesota Zoo for their Treetop Trail project, along with other improvements. The plan calls for repurposing the zoo’s dormant monorail line to create a 1.3-mile elevated walkway that would loop through a variety of animal habitats, including native Minnesotan oak forests and wetlands, and allow visitors to see the lands and animals from a different perspective.

I'm so excited to support Rep John Huot as he runs for a second term in the Minnesota House. @Mnrephuot has been a tremendous advocate for public education and gun violence prevention, which are two issues close to my heart. Minnesota is lucky to have him working at the Capitol.

What a great experience participating in mini session in Winona and surrounding communities. My last experience took place last night. My football officiating crew had the honor to officiate the Albert Lea home game last night.

Walmart Insulin is not the answer to skyrocketing insulin costs. To claim that it is shows ignorance to the high risk of serious and even deadly complications that can result. To continue to promote this in spite of learning of these risks is heartless. #Insulin4all https://twitter.com/jessvanb/status/1176507341312860161
