Proposal includes largest agriculture budget in state history
Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan announced a series of proposals to invest in Minnesota’s economic future. Included in their One Minnesota Budget, this $4.1 billion proposal would provide paid family and medical leave for Minnesota’s workers, bolster support for small businesses, and expand Minnesota’s workforce in the most critical sectors. The budget includes climate proposals that expand Minnesota’s clean energy economy and reduce climate impacts for future generations. The Governor’s agriculture budget, which is over $100 million, will support local farmers and producers to grow their businesses while expanding the state’s biofuels infrastructure, building soil health, and supporting new and emerging farmers. . .
