From MN House of Representatives, 5/26/17:  Day three of the 2017 special session saw lawmakers pass final omnibus bills to be sent to Gov. Mark Dayton, with weary House members wrapping up their work at 2:42 a.m. Friday following a week of long days — and nights — at the State Capitol.  Legislators finished a tax bill that includes extended bar close times for next year’s Super Bowl in Minneapolis, an omnibus education bill that includes $483 million in new money, and a transportation bill with $300 million in new General Fund dollars.

From minnpost.com, 5/26/17:  President Lyndon Johnson declared food stamps to “be one of our most valuable weapons for the war on poverty” when he signed The Food Stamps Act of 1964. Unfortunately, that fight persists with one in 10 Minnesotans lacking enough food to feed themselves and their families. These hungry Minnesotans go to school with our kids, live down the street and work at many of the places we frequent daily.

It’s official.  After repeatedly saying that he will make NAFTA “a lot better” or scrap the deal, Donald Trump just officially informed Congress he plans to renegotiate this notoriously disastrous trade pact with Canada and Mexico.  Of course, Trump hasn’t exactly been true to his word on much of anything.  He uses grandiose proclamations about creating jobs and a new trade policy to distract Minnesotans from his daily disasters. And then he doesn’t deliver.  

The Hardman Avenue Workers Center is proud to offer FREE workshops for people who need assistance or have questions about the immigration process.  Please join us for our grand opening celebration on Thursday, June 8, 2017:  Refreshments served from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m.; program at 5:00 p.m. at Local 1189 Union Hall in South St. Paul.  Free citizenship workshops will be held on Saturday, June 10 and Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
