Getting results for hardworking Minnesotans.

Making sure workers are prepared for the 21st century economy.
No good job should go unfilled because workers aren't getting the right training. Soon 70% of all jobs in Minnesota will require at least some postsecondary education. Not everyone wants a four-year degree. There isn't just one path. We need to invest in one and two-year degrees offered by community and technical colleges, apprenticeships, and certification programs. Amy is working to make sure every person in this country has a clear path to a good job.
Encouraging American businesses to invest and innovate in America.
We need to do more to catch foreign countries that break our trade laws ­like we've seen with steel dumping from China. We need to support American businesses that innovate and create American jobs, too, like with clean energy. Amy is working to cut red tape and ease regulatory burdens for businesses, streamline our tax code, help small businesses succeed, open new export markets, and ensure the U.S. remains competitive worldwide.
Helping keep costs down for American families.
The prices of four out of the top 10 prescription drugs have gone up by 100 percent over the last 10 years. That's not right. Amy is taking on the fight to bring down prescription drug costs by bringing in safe, affordable drugs from Canada, making it easier for generics to get to market, and harnessing the bargaining power of seniors by letting Medicare negotiate prices.
Rebuilding Minnesota's infrastructure.
In Minnesota, we know how important a strong, sturdy infrastructure is. When the I-35W bridge collapsed, Amy worked across the aisle and secured the funding to get it rebuilt. Amy was one of the first Democratic senators to support the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, which provides Minnesota with over $4 billion in funding for transportation over the five years of the bill.

"Growing up I learned no matter where you come from, you can succeed. And now I am here today, the granddaughter of an iron ore miner, the daughter of a school teacher and a newspaperman, and the first woman elected to the U.S. Senate from Minnesota. I get up every day working to make sure every child from every part of Minnesota can get ahead."
