Governor Walz announced proposals to strengthen economic opportunity and security for Minnesotans Thursday. The package includes direct financial support of $1.7 billion to frontline workers and families, targeted tax cuts that will reduce the costs of child care for families, and investments in workforce development.
“These proposals would deliver real results for working families and all of our frontline workers, by giving direct financial aid to those who need it most and by reducing the high cost of child care facing Minnesotans across the state,” said Senator Ann Rest (DFL-New Hope), ranking DFL-lead on the Senate Taxes Committee. “In the upcoming session I will work with my colleagues to build on the proposal from Governor Walz and ensure that working families get the support they need to recover.”
To help strengthen support for working families, Senator Rest plans to introduce legislation early in the upcoming legislative session that would extend the direct rebate for families to three years.
