Al Franken On State Of The Union

Senator Al Franken

U.S. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s State of the Union Address:

“Creating jobs and improving the economy has to be our top priority and I’m glad we heard that from the President tonight. I’ve spent the past few weeks traveling around Minnesota talking with workers, small business owners, and educators. And from East Grand Forks and Alexandria to Rochester and Duluth, everyone reinforced that investing in education, job training, and innovation is essential to our economic future and creating long-term prosperity.

“We must address some very serious issues in the year to come, among them the federal budget and reform of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, and bipartisan cooperation is going to be key to getting anything done. I hope that the tone the President set tonight continues throughout the 112th Congress.”
