Several Duluth projects, priorities heading to Gov. Walz for approval

ST. PAUL, MN– The Minnesota Legislature has ended its special session after passing a $48 billion budget to fund state government for the next two years.

The House and Senate passed the last of their budget bills Saturday morning and adjourned around 7 a.m., finishing the one-day special session close to the deadline that Gov. Tim Walz and top legislative leaders had set.

Several Duluth-based projects and priorities are now heading to Gov. Walz for signing.

According to Duluth city leaders, the half-percent sales tax dedicated for streets, as well as nearly $100 million for the Essentia Health-St. Luke’s Hospital medical district, are both included in the tax bill.

An increase in Local Government Aid and the provision of Tax Increment Financing for Lot D are also included, according to city officials.

Governor Walz will hold a signing ceremony early next week that will be advised at a later date.
