Duluth New Tribune reports on Minnesota Legislature…
The House and Senate each advanced plans for their next priorities for COVID-19 aid including housing assistance, funding to boost broadband and dull the financial pain felt by small businesses, but they hadn’t yet stuck agreements on dollar amounts or exactly what that package would look like.
Gazelka and Walz on Friday said legislative leaders were still in negotiations about the next round of aid but had similar aims and felt confident they would get a package approved this weekend.
Lawmakers could also approve COVID-19 relief during a special legislative session slated for June 12.
But I can see Senator Westrom’s broadband bill (SF4494) is on the agenda on the Senate Floor for today.
