Angie Craig will soon have a bill on President Donald Trump’s desk — the first bill in the current Congress sponsored by a member of the Minnesota delegation to make it anywhere near being signed into law. On Wednesday, the Second District representative’s bill cleared the House, after already passing in the Senate — an unusual feat considering the current gridlock. Craig says the bill’s intention is simple, but necessary: The Payment Integrity Information Act of 2019 aims to curb billions of dollars of improper payments made by federal agencies to government contractors.

I used to think I was invincible, that the rules didn’t apply to me. That I’d never get sick. Well, that changed two years ago when I went to my dentist to have a root canal. I learned that the root was unfit for the procedure and had the tooth pulled. But my gums got infected and, after a week of pain, I visited a dental surgeon. He took one look and told me to get to the emergency room. I spent five days in the hospital with doctors trying to keep the infection from going to my brain.
Real solutions to the struggles I hear about from you bind us together. That’s how over 75% of my bills are bipartisan, because day in and day out, I am committed to working with anyone — no matter their party — on any bill that will ease these struggles and make the lives of Minnesota families safer, healthier and happier in the years to come.
