MN state Sen. David Osmek: Minnesotans are ‘sick and tired of the vandalism and violence’
A new bill in Minnesota blocks people convicted of rioting, or other criminal offenses during civil unrest and protests, from receiving taxpayer-funded state aid.
SF 2381 prevents those convicted of such crimes from receiving state aid including, but not limited to:
- Student loans and grants
- Rent or mortgage assistance
- Food stamps
- Unemployment benefits
- Business grants
- Medical assistance and healthcare.
Republican state Sen. David Osmek introduced the bill to the Minnesota House this month. Read more at Neon Nettle.
