Senator Amy Klobuchar

Working for the People of Minnesota

On the Issues

The Economy, Housing, & the Middle Class

Minnesotans believe in hard work, fair play and personal responsibility. I do, too. Minnesota has always stood for opportunity through hard work. Read more…

Protecting Minnesotans

The first responsibility of government is to protect its citizens - not only from criminals on the street but from unsafe merchandise in our stores, unsafe products in our communities and unscrupulous business practices that bring financial ruin to consumers. Read more…

Agriculture & Rural Communities

Minnesota's 80,000 farms represent a proud part of our state's heritage and history. We are the nation's fifth largest agricultural producing state, and our farmers contribute more than $10 billion to Minnesota's economy each year. Read more…

Homegrown Energy

The rising price of energy for our homes, our vehicles, and our businesses is one of the top issues affecting the family checkbook. The simple truth is that our country has been headed down the wrong energy path. Read more…

Environment & Conservation

Environmental stewardship is part of Minnesota's heritage–and it's part of my own family heritage too. Like most Minnesotans, I grew up in a family that values the outdoors. Read more…


I believe that ethics is something that must be woven into the very fabric of our government. Ethics goes to the heart of our American democracy–to the public trust and respect that is essential to the health of our constitutional system. Read more…


Seniors are already a growing part of Minnesota's population–and they will become even more so as the Baby Boom generation retires. Minnesota already has the second longest life expectancy of any state in the country. Read more…

Health Care

I believe every American should have access to quality, affordable health care. Minnesota is already a leader in quality of care and the percentage of citizens with health insurance, and there is much that the rest of the nation can learn from Minnesota about quality and access. Read more…


In the past four years, American military service personnel and their families have endured challenges that are unprecedented in recent history, including unrelenting operational demands and recurring deployments in combat zones. Read more…

National Guard & Reserves

The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have highlighted the importance of our brave citizen-soldiers in the National Guard and Reserves–and the sacrifices they have been called upon to make. Read more…

Iraq & Afghanistan

For the past several years, the men and women of our Armed Forces have been asked to fight two separate, difficult conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Read more…

National Security

Protecting our nation from those who would do us harm is the first and most important responsibility of Congress. In the midst of turbulent times abroad, we must remain vigilant in deterring hostile nations and pursuing terrorist networks intent on bringing death and destruction to our country. Read more…

Public Safety

Before coming to the Senate, I served for eight years as chief prosecutor for Minnesota's most populous county, serving more than one million residents in Minneapolis and 45 suburban communities. Read more…

Families & Children

As a mother, I know that parents have an increasingly difficult job in today's world. The economic pressures, the time demands, the many outside influences that affect even the youngest children–all of these, and more, make this an especially challenging time for America's families. Read more…


Education has been a stepping stone to opportunity for my family, as it has been for many Minnesota families. My grandfather didn't graduate from high school, but he worked hard and saved money in a coffee can in the basement so my dad could go to college. Read more…
