News from Representative Tom Emmer


Dear Friend,

The main function of any Representative is to serve their constituents in Congress. However, this office can do a lot for you right here at home.

I am always available to assist you. For example, if you are unable to get an answer from a federal agency in a timely manner or feel like you have been treated unfairly, our caseworkers may be able to resolve the problem or get you the information that you need! If you think you need assistance from a caseworker, call the Otsego district office at 763-241-6848 or visit our website here. You can also meet one of our caseworkers in person to discuss your issues.

Sincerely,

Upcoming Town Hall Meeting

Defending Life

Last week, Americans around the country gathered in our nation's capital to march to defend the sanctity of life. I am and always will be pro-life. As a father of seven, my children are the most significant blessings in my life. Each one has renewed and strengthened my respect for the dignity and opportunity of human life. 

This Congress, I signed a discharge petition to attempt to bring about a vote on the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act (H.R. 962). This legislation will protect children who are born alive during an abortion. When these children are physically born and viable outside the womb, health care practitioners would be required to exercise a degree of care for the child like any other person. Additionally, I am proud to co-sponsor the Second Chance at Life Act, which will require a doctor to inform mothers seeking a chemical abortion that the abortion can be reversed after its first dose. I am also a co-sponsor of the Down Syndrome Discrimination by Abortion Act, which will prohibit abortions because they test positive for Down Syndrome. Every child should have a chance at life.

These are just a few of the many important legislative efforts that can protect life, actions that I will continue to support as long as I serve in Congress. Thank you to everyone who marched in defense of life last week, and to everyone who continues to give a voice to the voiceless.

National School Choice Week

Education should be as diverse and individualized as the children it serves. Across the country, regardless of background or zip code, children need to have access to an excellent education.

This week is National School Choice Week. Throughout my time in Congress, I have had the opportunity to talk with parents in Minnesota’s Sixth Congressional District on the different options and avenues they have to educate their children. We are proud of our public schools, the innovative charter schools, and the effective private schools. Every family should have the opportunity to determine which school is the best choice for them. 

I am proud to co-sponsor Education Freedom Scholarships and Opportunity Act. This tax credit will provide states more latitude to select the type of education that fits their needs and supports scholarships that would address our growing skills gap. I am committed to finding ways for every family to have the ability to make choices about their educational opportunities based on their needs.
