U.S. House passes public safety package

Every member of Minnesota's delegation voted for local police grant legislation included in a larger set of bills


September 23, 2022

"Despite reports of its demise, bipartisanship is still alive," Democratic Rep. Dean Phillips texted shortly after passage of the $300 million legislation.

The package, which includes grant funding for departments with fewer than 125 law enforcement officers, passed on a 360-64 vote.
