During the MN Ag Expo, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz praised agriculture for coming together and getting work done is spite of a difficult growing season. “In the political realm, there was lots of bipartisan cooperation from the early relief for the dairy barns that collapsed to the emergency contingency fund to some of the things we did for tax relief.” With the legislative session coming up, Governor Walz said Minnesota is in a good position. “The idea of de-stigmatizing mental health issues, understanding this is a normal reaction to stressful situations is important,” said Walz. “Being at the MN Ag Expo, you have peripheral issues that go with this from renewable energy to healthcare. These issues are critical to rural Minnesota.”
