Sen. John Marty

Senator John Marty Receives 2013 Child Advocate Legislator of the Year Award

Senator John Marty is the DFL Senator for Roseville and St. Paul-based Senate District 66. In a legislative session focused on budget and tax bills and enormous issues like marriage equality, Senator Marty remained focused upon important changes to protect the state’s newborn screening program. He vigorously pursued legislative changes that would forestall the destruction of newborn screening test results. While the effort was ultimately blocked in the House, Senator Marty’s steadfast and vocal support of newborn screening raised the program’s profile among colleagues, and insures that the discussion will continue in 2014. Additionally, he is recognized as a leading Capitol voice for expanding health access, clean energy, ethics in government, and economic justice.
