Franson Statement on Supreme Court Hearing Harris v. Quinn

ST. PAUL – Rep. Mary Franson (R-Alexandria) released the following statement in response to Tuesday’s hearing of Harris v. Quinn before the U.S. Supreme Court.

“While a ruling on this case is months away, its outcome will carry great significance for the hardworking parents and childcare providers of Minnesota,” said Franson, a former childcare provider. “Allowing union bosses to insert themselves into the care of our children violates the sacred trust parents have with their childcare provider. It’s wrong for vulnerable people like children to be caught up in a political power grab that will only take more money from moms, dads, and childcare providers for the sole purpose of filling union coffers.”

In October, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued an injunction for Minnesota’s childcare unionization law to remain in effect until the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the merits of Harris v. Quinn. A ruling is expected in June.
