Walz signs veterans bill into law

Tuesday, Gov. Tim Walz signed a veterans services funding bill into law.

The legislation was passed by the Minnesota House and Senate last week and includes funding for veteran homes and cemeteries, bonuses, and other programs.

“This bill makes good on our duty to protect and support our veterans during and after their service – and it demonstrates that we can come together in a bipartisan way to honor the sacrifices of our veterans and their families,” Walz said in a statement. “As a 24-year veteran of the National Guard, this is a bill that’s close to my heart. I know that this is going to have a real impact for our veterans and I’m proud to sign it into law.”
