Rep. Steve Green R-Fosston was officially sworn in as the state representative for House District 02B Tuesday in St. Paul in the chamber of the Minnesota House of Representatives. District 02B consists of most of Becker County, southern Clearwater County, southern Hubbard County, Mahnomen County, northeastern Otter Tail County, and northern Wadena County.

"I'm humbled by the confidence the voters in my district have expressed in electing me," said Green. "I plan to get to work quickly to represent the values or rural Minnesota in the legislature."

Green's priorities include working to create a business friendly environment for rural Minnesota, pushing for lower property taxes, and advocating for a comprehensive energy policy for the state.

"Rural Minnesota turns out the best work force in the country. We need to allow our existing rural businesses to expand and allow new ones to spring up so that we have opportunities for our young people to stay in the area," said Green.

Green's committee assignments include Capital Investment, Environment & Natural Resources Policy, Housing Finance & Policy, and Legacy.
