Tonight, Governor Tim Walz signed four omnibus budget bills and a bonding technical bill into law. Highlights from the bills include providing direct COVID-19 relief for small businesses; investing in statewide economic development and redevelopment grants; building safer communities for all Minnesotans by establishing public safety measures and establishing a Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives Office; supporting Minnesota’s veterans through measures such as the Restorative Justice Act; and a historic investment in education—$1.2 billion over four years, the largest formula increase in 15 years.
