Disaster relief - but not tax relief - on special session agenda
A special session will take place Sept. 9 to appropriate disaster relief funding for rebuilding damaged infrastructure and aiding cleanup efforts after storms hit Minnesota in June.
Most of the damage occurred in 18 counties spanning the western, central and southern parts of the state. The damage total is estimated to be $18 million. The state will pay 25 percent and receive a 75-percent match from the federal government.
