Today, I’m at the Rochester International Airport to see the progress made on
much-needed upgrades made possible by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

These upgrades mean the airport can continue supporting local businesses, medical patients, and our local economy.

Chief Executive Benjamin, thank you for your service to Mille Lacs Band and our state and country!

You’re a great friend, colleague and mentor to me, and you have led with intelligence, strength and deep wisdom. May your retirement bring you time with family and more adventures.

In the 1940s the federal government wrongly seized land from the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, but today thousands of acres of that land was restored.
 
This victory belongs to the tribal members who worked for decades to achieve this. I’m honored to be their partner in this work.

Today I visited farmers in Northern Minnesota to hear how flooding is impacting them and their livestock.

When disasters strike, our farmers deserve a government that has their back – and I’m ready to make sure that happens.

Paul Wellstone led from the belief that we all do better when we all do better.
 
Today we celebrated the newly-renamed Paul D. Wellstone Federal Building that commemorates his legacy  and reminds us to lead with authenticity, joy, and the goal of improving people's lives.

Information is still coming in but I want to say this: Violence has absolutely no place in our politics — or anywhere for that matter. I’m relieved former President Trump is safe.

What a pleasure to speak with folks organizing around my legislation to change Comstock and protect abortion rights from a Trump presidency.

If we’re going to stop Republicans from banning abortion – even in places like Minnesota – we need all hands on deck.

$1 billion from the uber-wealthy who have been exploiting loopholes and illegally dodging taxes that the other 99% of Americans have been paying? I’d call that a win.

The Republican Supreme Court has compiled an alarming right-wing resume:

Granted Trump immunity.
Ended nationwide abortion access.
Made rules easier for polluters, big banks and unsafe drugmakers.

These serious failures require a serious response. Expand the Court.

America is the only industrialized country that doesn’t guarantee a single day of paid leave – because we still somehow expect women to just ‘handle it’ when someone gets sick, without any support.

Paid family leave is pro-worker, pro-economic growth, and long overdue.

It’s unacceptable for veterans to return home and not have a roof over their heads.

I’m introducing the Housing for All Veterans Act to make sure all veterans have a safe, decent, affordable place to live after sacrificing so much for the good of our nation.

The 75th annual NATO Summit being hosted on American soil is our chance to show the world that we stand united with our allies. We will continue to show dictators like Putin that we will always fight for democracy, whether at home or abroad.
