Technology & Reform Policy

The Committee on Technology and Reform Policy has jurisdiction over all bills relating to the management, delivery, accessibility and security of the state’s information and telecommunications technology systems and services. The Committee also has jurisdiction over bills that address multi-agency operational reforms. In 2021, I had the honor to serve as the Chair of this newly formed Committee. (I am again Chair of this committee in 2022.) This committee served a vital role in the legislature focusing our energies on reviewing how Minnesota uses your tax dollars to fund state operations. The legislation we worked on concentrated on pushing our state agencies to rethink how they deliver critical services to Minnesotans and asked the question of how they can [...]

Senator Koran on why Governor Walz’s emergency powers have to end

Today we passed a resolution to end Governor Walz's emergency powers, which have been extended longer than any other governor has done in Minnesota history. This has crushed our businesses and people's livelihoods with very little positive effect for patients in long term care. It's time to put the legislature back where it's supposed to be - representing you.

Senator Koran: Confident our MN business-people can do this right

It was great to see so many people gather on the Capitol steps to protest arbitrarily chosen winners and losers during this pandemic. Minnesotans know how to keep themselves safe and healthy, and we will get through this, as we have other public health menaces. The vulnerable elderly should be our top priority for protection. Burdensome regulations on businesses are not the answer that will keep them safe.

Senator Koran: We have to stop picking winners and losers

It's time to implement health and safety plans for medium and small-sized businesses so they can open. Large stores selling the same products were never closed. Medium and small businesses are the heart and sole of rural Minnesota!

Senator Koran On Importance of Opening Houses of Worship

Houses of worship are absolutely critical in our communities. Not only do they care for the spiritual and mental health of their members, but they frequently run food shelves and other charitable services. We have the means to open them while keeping at-risk people safe and healthy, so we need to take this issue seriously.
