Our progressive leaders haven’t wasted a minute of this year’s legislative session. In less than two months, they’ve passed several historic bills, with many more on the agenda.
Let’s take a look at what’s gone down at the Capitol so far, and what’s coming up next…
Governor Walz signed the PRO Act into law, codifying our right to safe, legal abortion and comprehensive reproductive health care in Minnesota.
To prevent a future climate crisis and grow our clean energy economy, progressives passed a bill to require utility companies to offer 100% carbon-free electricity by 2040.
Restoring the right to vote
Last week, progressives in the legislature passed a bill to restore the right to vote for 50,000 formerly incarcerated Minnesotans.
Driver’s Licenses For All
Reinstating a right that was taken away by former Governor Pawlenty in 2003, progressives passed Driver’s Licenses For All, allowing Minnesotans to earn a driver’s license regardless of their immigration status.
Coming up next…
In March, Minnesotans can expect more historic action on the issues that matter most. Right now in the legislature, progressives are fighting for LGBTQ+ rights, paid family leave, earned safe and sick time, and more.
And that’s just a taste of what Minnesotans can look forward to. To stay in the know, sign up to receive updates from ABM straight to your inbox.
