Tuesday, Gov. Tim Walz signed three more omnibus budget bills that were passed by the Minnesota Legislature during its special session.

The new legislation included measures to ensure housing stability by establishing an eviction moratorium off-ramp, protect Minnesota's natural resources and provide "historic" investment in health and human services resources.

"Today, I'm proud to sign legislation that will provide Minnesotans with the resources they need to emerge from COVID-19 stronger than before," Walz said. "This legislation will support working families by expanding access to critical assistance; provide resources to both keep Minnesotans housed and connect them with housing; and invest in protecting and preserving Minnesota's natural resources for generations to come."

It comes after Walz signed five budget bills on Saturday.
