Minnesota Agriculture and Broadband Bill becomes law

The Minnesota agriculture and broadband bill has been signed into law.

Senate Agriculture Committee chair Aric Putnam joined Governor Walz for a signing ceremony on a farm in northeast Minnesota Thursday and calls it a balanced bill.

“We did a lot of work to help farmers with stability as national security, like the Grain Indemnity Fund or like the DAIRI fund that helps farmers participate in federal price guarantees and stuff like that. We also did a lot of work on sustainability.”

He tells Brownfield the legislation invests in soil health grants and ag innovation.

Governor Walz says agriculture is central to Minnesota’s identity and this bipartisan law will empower the state’s farmers, ranchers, and producers to succeed for years in the future.
