Time Sensitive Call to Action – Election Security (HAVA Funds)
3.7.19

The House-Senate Conference Committee meets this evening (Thurs) to start the negotiations on election funds (HF14/SF241) that the Federal Govt granted to every state to secure our elections infrastructure, but the MNGOP is holding it hostage.

The House passed a bill to give access to the full amount.

The Senate passed a bill to only give us access to 20% of the funds and tacked on unrelated and unnecessary provisions.

  • If you have a legislator on the conference committee please call them and urge them to support a clean bill for full funding.
  • If your legislator is not on the conference committee, please call your Senator and ask them to work with their colleagues to release the full funding to the Secretary of State.

You can also show up or even testify.
Please contact Jim Gelbmann (651-296-7427 or jim.gelbmann@house.mn ) if you would like to testify at the Conference Committee hearing.

Hearing Time: 6:00 pm
Location: 500 South, State Office Building
Chair: Rep M. Nelson
House Conference Members:Reps Nelson, Dehn, and Vogel
