Walz signing

On Monday, Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan held a ceremonial bill signing with tribal leaders, community members, and legislators in honor of the Minnesota First Special Session Chapter 14, HF 9, Article 11, Section 5, affirming the Government-To-Government relationship with Tribal Governments.

“For far too long, state government has not worked with or for Native people – the Governor and I are committed to changing that, for the long term,” said Lieutenant Governor Flanagan. “I am filled with gratitude for the friendship and partnership – from tribal leaders, from legislators, and from community voices – that got this bill across the finish line and into state law. Today is a historic, important step for the future of tribal state relations in Minnesota.”
