SAINT PAUL, Minn.— In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Minnesota Senate floor session took place today where they passed a $331.5 million relief package providing additional resources for state agencies, businesses, workers and other entities. This bill will now head to Governor Tim Walz’s desk to be signed into law.
“In these unprecedented times, it is important Minnesotans come together to support those most impacted by COVID-19, ” said Senator Jason Isaacson. Today, the legislature passed an omnibus COVID-19 relief bill to navigate the uncertain times we are in. Our small businesses, workers, and families will continue to be faced with challenges, and my colleagues and I in the legislature will continue to explore options to address the long-term impacts COVID-19 has on them. There will be more work to do, but this is an important step to support Minnesotans who need it the most.”
