Minnesota Legislation Holds Special Session: Disaster Relief

ST. PAUL (TEC News), September 10 – Minnesota Legislation held a one-day special session to approve disaster relief funds for a handful of counties. June storms swept through southern and central Minnesota, leaving damage to 18 counties. Representative Clark Johnson says the state backs up our people well:
