District 11 Senator Bill Ingebrigtsen, R-Alexandria, was sworn in Tuesday as Minnesota’s 87th legislative session began.
Joined by 36 fellow Republican senators, Republicans are now in the Senate majority for the first time in 40 years.
“I am truly honored to serve the residents of District 11 for another term,” said Ingebrigtsen. “I look forward to working for the constituents of my district and using common-sense goals that all Minnesotans want and expect: an improved business climate, a balanced budget and a government that is more efficient and more effective.”
Previously the Senate’s ranking minority member on the Finance-Public Safety Budget Division, Ingebrigtsen will serve as chair of the Environmental and Natural Resources Budget and Policy Committee in the new majority.
Ingebrigtsen said he looks forward to working aggressively and immediately on environmental policies and initiatives. He and fellow legislators seek to streamline regulatory and permitting processes in order to create a more business-friendly climate.
Ingebrigtsen will meet with newly appointed Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Commissioner Paul Aasen later this week to begin preliminary discussions on this and other topics.
Ingebrigtsen encourages constituent input, and can be reached at (651) 297-8063, by mail at 303 Capitol, 75 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, MN 55155, or via e-mail at email@example.com.
