News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

Yesterday, I outlined a series of bills that serve as a symbol of my commitment to creating jobs, investing in Minnesota’s transportation infrastructure, and encouraging financial innovation. 

I began by reintroducing The National Interchange/Intersection Safety Construction Program Act. This legislation prioritizes funding for intersections and interchanges and would increase the local control over federal transportation dollars. The bill prioritizes a portion of federal highway funds for interchange and intersection development and allows projects to compete for those funds. 

Minnesotans know firsthand the insufficient interchanges and intersections on highways like 10, 35, 55, and 94. This bill will relieve congestion, so people can more easily get around our great state, and our businesses can grow and thrive.

Following that, I have published a working discussion draft of my Main Street Growth Act. This legislation will facilitate the creation of venture exchanges, creating jobs, improving capital formation, and encouraging more early-stage Initial Public Offerings (IPOs). By making it easier for thousands of small and emerging growth companies – including over 100 in Minnesota - to go public, we can help to generate millions of jobs and trillions of dollars in revenue for the economy. 

I also reintroduced The Blockchain Regulatory Certainty Act, which would relieve regulatory pressure for certain blockchain innovators that should not need to register with the government as a money transmitter. I am glad that Representative Darren Soto (D-FL) has joined as the bipartisan co-lead of this legislation. 

Finally, I am working to reintroduce the Travel Trailer and Camper Tax Parity Act which provides consistency and clarity for recreational vehicle (RV) and camper dealers, their employees and consumers. The way the law is currently written leaves our RV dealers without the clarity and consistency they need, putting them at an unnecessary competitive disadvantage.

These bills will bring regulatory relief, prioritize funding for critical infrastructure projects, provide a technical fix for the tax treatment of recreational vehicles and campers, and support ongoing blockchain innovation. I look forward to seeing these bills through the legislative process and accomplishing priorities important to Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District. 


Sincerely,
