Special Session For Flood Relief Ongoing
Lawmakers have gathered in St. Paul today to pass a $180 million relief package for damage done by the flood in Northeastern Minnesota back in June. Extensive damage was done to parts of our Minnesota listening area in Pine, Carlton, and Aitkin Counties. Other regions affected in the storm and other area windstorms are also being included in the relief bill.
House DFL Leader Paul Thissen offered these comments on the special session. Things are expected to go quite smoothly, and the session is likely going to conclude later on Friday
