Dayton Signing Bills Into Law
After the legislative session wrapped up on Monday, Gov. Mark Dayton has been busy signing bills into law.
On Thursday, Dayton signed bills aimed at growing the economy, investing in veterans and keeping health care costs down.
A representative of Dayton’s issued a statement on Thursday saying:
“Minnesotans need a strong economy for good jobs, living wages, and a strong middle class. That is why the Governor and the DFL legislature took bold action this session to create jobs, strengthen our infrastructure, and make our state a more competitive place to do business. Today, Governor Dayton signed (HF729) a bill into law that invests millions in job creation efforts that will leverage billions of dollars in private sector investment in Minnesota’s economy, make our state a more competitive place to do business, and get thousands of Minnesotans back to work.
Nearly 400,000 veterans call Minnesota home. Our veterans have endured great sacrifice to make our state and country safer. That is why Governor Dayton signed a bill (SF1589) into law today that invests in Minnesota veterans, ensuring they receive the education, opportunities, and benefits they earned through their service.
Minnesota is a national leader in providing quality health care at low costs. But health and human services are still the fastest growing parts of our budget, with costs rising 8.5% each year. We can do more to improve health and reduce costs. Today, Governor Dayton signed a bill (HF1233) that makes crucial reforms to deliver better services at a better price for taxpayers.”
