Franson issues statement on childcare unionization lawsuit hearing

ST. PAUL - State Representative Mary Franson, R-Alexandria, released the following statement on today's hearing in federal court on the childcare unionization lawsuit.

"This court hearing is the first step to remedy the injustice done by Democrats in St. Paul to the hardworking childcare providers and parents of Minnesota. As a former childcare provider, I know firsthand we don't need big union bosses increasing costs and creating fewer options for the care of our precious children," said Franson. "I'm optimistic the court will side with the childcare providers who brought this lawsuit and rule that Governor Dayton and Democrats in the legislature acted outside the bounds of the law."
