Building on Minnesota's Momentum
Friends and family it's been an honor to serve in the Minnesota House. I've made amazing friends here from all political spectrums. Sen. Katie Sieben has decided to leave the legislature and I've decided to run for her open seat.
If every House and Senate member had the opportunity to work with a friend and amazing legislator like her the world would be an even better place. Expect more soon, but for now it's time to get back to the people's business at the Capitol for some pre-session hearings and meetings.
Fighting for Minnesotans
HISTORIC INVESTMENTS IN EDUCATION
Dan Schoen made good on his commitment to pay back the money owed to our schools and voted to make historic investments in education -- including all-day kindergarten for every Minnesota child. Rep. Schoen also voted for the largest financial aid increase in a generation, including a tuition freeze at Minnesota state colleges and universities to help Minnesota students pay for college.
LOWER TAXES FOR MIDDLE-CLASS MINNESOTANS
Thanks to the direct property tax relief passed by the Legislature in 2013 and 2014, Minnesotans will be paying less property taxes statewide for the first time in more than a decade. Dan Schoen also voted to use a significant portion of the 2014 budget surplus to cut taxes for more than a million Minnesotans.
A Progressive Champion
A STRONG ECONOMY AND MORE JOBS
More than 50,000 jobs have been created in Minnesota since the 2013 session began, which means all of the jobs lost during the Great Recession have been recovered. Rep. Schoen helped build on this progress with new investments proven to spur middle class job creation, such as job training initiatives and incentives for business expansions.
ECONOMIC SECURITY FOR WOMEN AND THEIR FAMILIES
Dan Schoen was a proud supporter of the Women's Economic Security Act, which promotes equal pay for equal work, enhances protections for victims of domestic violence, strengthens workplace protections for women -- including pregnant women and new mothers -- and helps women learn skills in high-wage jobs where women are underrepresented.
