Dan Schoen Fighting For Minnesota's Working Families
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. Representative Dan 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 in property taxes statewide for the first time in more than a decade. Representative Dan Schoen also voted to use a significant portion of the 2014 budget surplus to cut taxes for more than a million Minnesotans.
A Stronger Economy & 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. Representative Dan Schoen helped build on this progress with new investments proven to spur the middle class job creation, such as job training initiatives and incentives for business expansions.
Economic Security for Women and 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.
