News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

This past month I have been doing what I love most - meeting and speaking with Minnesotans from all over the state. I met with members of the police force, educators, manufacturers, healthcare providers, small business owners, farmers and more. All of whom are a reminder of why I am so proud to hail from our great state. It has been such a pleasure representing Minnesota’s Sixth District and meeting those who live and work here, making it safe to say that I look forward to continue serving you in the 115th Congress.

The Care They Deserve

Today, on Veterans Day, all Americans should take pause to remember the brave men and women who have served our nation so that we may continue to live in the land of the free. That is why I dedicated this week’s Ask Tom video to our veterans. Watch below.


While I think it is wonderful to celebrate our nation’s veterans on this day - it is also important to celebrate our veterans each and every day.

That is why I cosponsored the Never Again Act, which would guarantee that no veteran is ever denied admittance to in-patient psychiatric care at a VA Medical Center. The legislation will require that every veteran receives care, even in circumstances where there are not enough beds or providers at that location. In that case, the VA would be obligated to find that veteran care at a non-VA facility.

This bill is largely in response to a veteran who tragically took his own life because he was denied psychiatric care at a VA Center earlier this year.

Our nation’s heroes deserve so much better and I am committed to fighting for these reforms today and always.

The Opportunity of a Lifetime!
The spring semester is right around the corner, which means one major thing! My office will be hiring interns to begin an amazing educational experience either in my Washington D.C. or district office. Congressional interns have the chance to see firsthand what it is like to work in a Congressional office and learn all about our government’s legislative branch.

Recognizing Excellence
Small businesses are a huge driver of our nation’s economy. Minnesota is the proud home to some incredible small businesses and these companies, and the men and women behind them, deserve to be recognized.

I
f you know of an entrepreneur or small business who should be acknowledged, be sure to nominate them in this year’s Small Business Awards. Details can be found here.

Once again, thanks for staying up to date on the work I am doing for Minnesota’s Sixth District.

Until next week…

Sincerely,
