Rep. Liz Olson elected House majority whip

Members of the Minnesota House DFL Caucus elected Rep. Liz Olson (DFL – Duluth) as majority whip for the 2019-2020 legislative session. She will assist the leadership team in advocating policies.

“I’m grateful to my colleagues for entrusting me with this responsibility as together, we work to make sure all Minnesotans have the opportunity to succeed and thrive,” Olson said in a news release. “Everyone, in every community, deserves affordable and accessible health care, quality schools, and good jobs with fair pay and benefits.”

The DFL Caucus regained the majority in the Minnesota House during the Nov. 6th general election, while Republicans retained control of the Minnesota Senate. The legislative session convenes at noon on January 8.
