International Falls – Minnesota 3A Representative Rob Ecklund joined The Morning Show on Friday, live from the Twin Cities.

Ahead of the Easter session break, Ecklund and the House are hearing bills and looking ahead to next session. On the itinerary this morning, was an omnibus hearing on a Veterans bill. Rep. Ecklund went into detail on how the proposed bill would help Minnesota vets.

Thursday evening, the House passed the Employee’s Earned Sick and Leave time bill, where it will be passed on to the Senate. Rep. Ecklund explained the bill, and why the Senate may not approve.

Amidst the pandemic in 2020, the bonding bill’s journey to the Governor’s desk was an arduous process. Does Rep. Ecklund see a long, drawn-out process this year?
