News from Representative Tom Emmer


Dear Friend,

Yesterday, we recognized National Doctor's Day. We are beyond grateful for our health care professionals who are caring for their fellow Minnesotans in their times of need. I want to thank all of our health care professionals, first responders, farmers, truck drivers, and grocery store employees who are working around the clock to keep our country moving forward. By working together, we will overcome this crisis and reemerge a stronger and more prosperous nation. 

As we get through this, I am committed to ensuring you have the most up to date information you need to keep you and your family safe. Please visit my Resource Page for COVID-19 Updates for Minnesota specific information, and information for seniors, small businesses, parents, and more.

Our office also remains available should you need additional assistance. You can visit our website at Emmer.House.Gov or contact my Otsego District Office at (763) 241-6848 or Washington, D.C. Office at (202) 225-2331. If I can be of assistance to you and your family, please do not hesitate to reach out.

CARES Act:

Last week, I voted for the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. You can read my full statement here regarding my vote.

The CARES Act is a massive effort to help combat the coronavirus and provide for our economy during this time of crisis. The bill provides direct payments to individuals struggling with the economic fallout of COVID-19. The bill also includes $117 billion for hospitals, $45 billion for the FEMA disaster relief fund, $350 billion to support small businesses, a major boost to unemployment benefits, and billions more for protective equipment (PPE) and ventilators.

Mental Health Resources:

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the way we live, work, and interact with our fellow Minnesotans. Children are home from school, parents are working remotely and we can’t go to many of the places we normally frequent. If you are feeling alone, depressed, or just in need of someone to talk to, my office has compiled several resources to help you and your loved ones navigate this difficult time. Read more here

Small Business Resources:

Small businesses are experiencing times of uncertainty as they navigate this pandemic. I am continuously updating resources on my web page to ensure you have the information you need to get through. This week, the U.S. Department of Labor released a list of answers for the most Frequently Asked Questions to assist you. You can read more resources for small businesses here
