Waltz Signs Minnesota Comprehensive Bill

Governor Waltz has signed the Agricultural Comprehensive Bill.

Stu Lourey, Director of Government Relations, Minnesota Farmers Union, said the law includes more than $ 18 million in drought relief.

“The governor first proposed in October of last year, and we asked for it in August. He was keen to put it on his desk throughout this session.”

The ag bill also provided $ 1.5 million to agricultural emergency accounts to help prepare and respond to animal diseases, and more than $ 1 million to create a down payment support program for novice farmers. increase.

“For new farmers who want to buy land and find out about their business, cash flow is possible but requires down payment assistance. It’s very exciting.”

Lurie calls the $ 200 million or more investment in broadband “historic” and says it helps connect many people across Minnesota.
