Gov. Walz Signs Veterans Bill Into Law
ST. PAUL (KVRR) — Gov Tim Walz has signed a bill to address veteran services and homelessness.
The state house passed the bill last Friday, one day after it cleared the senate.
It includes over $52 million for veterans affairs.
Sixteen point five million is being set aside for veterans’ homes.
Nearly $25 million will be given in the form of bonuses including two thousand dollars to around 48,000 eligible post 9/11 era veterans in Minnesota.
Gold Star families are also eligible for those bonuses.
The bill also includes funding for enlistment incentives in the Minnesota National Guard, of which Walz is a 24-year veteran.
