The number seats in the Minnesota legislature that will be open this fall keeps growing.

Rep. Yvonne Selcer said Friday she won't run for re-election. Selcer is currently serving her second term in the House, representing Minnetonka.

The projects that she's been a part of include passing all-day kindergarten, expanding early childhood education, making college more affordable, protecting veterans and creating a solar energy standard.

Even after she leaves office, the DFL representative says she will remain dedicated to her district and Minnesota.

DFL House Leader Paul Thissen released a statement saying Selcer has had a reputation for being "a smart, earnest legislator who knew how to work together to get things done."

Selcer is the 21st lawmaker to announce she won't seek re-election, according to a list put together by the Minnesota Legislative Reference Library.
