The budget proposed by Minnesota Governor Tim Walz includes significant investments in biofuels and soil health.
Speaking to Brownfield during the MN Ag Expo in Mankato last week, Walz said there is $6 million to build out biofuel infrastructure and $4 million for soil health initiatives.
“I think this whole budget will probably be north of $100 million, we’ve not seen anything like that. And at the same time reducing property tax burdens on those folks.”
He suggests a sizable portion of the budget surplus has come from the hard work of Minnesotans in the ag community.
