News from Representative Tom Emmer

...our office March Madness bracket challenge.

Dear Friend, 

March Madness is here, and not only for basketball. 

This time of year is busy on Capitol Hill, with committee hearings and several meetings. I spoke on the House Floor in honor of National Agriculture Week, I filled in as chair of a subcommittee hearing on U.S. election support in Africa, and I even had the chance to visit with the University of Minnesota baseball team during their trip to Washington, D.C.

During his testimony before a full hearing in the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I questioned Deputy Secretary of State Antony Blinken on the nuclear negotiations with Iran. Click here to view the questioning.

Town Hall Coming Soon
My staff and I strive to be transparent, accountable, and most importantly—accessible. I will be in Blaine, Minnesota on April 1 for a town hall. This will be an opportunity for my constituents to ask me questions about the issues that matter most to them and to hear from me directly about my work in Congress. Hope you can join me! See details below:

WHEN: April 1, 2015, 6:00-7:00pm
