ACTION ALERT – Thank Governor Walz for making LGA a budget priority

Gov. Tim Walz made good on his promise to support Local Government Aid (LGA) when he unveiled his budget recommendations today. The Governor’s budget proposal includes a $30.5 million increase in LGA, which is the amount needed to bring the program back to its 2002 level. Restoring LGA to the 2002 funding level is the top priority for the CGMC this session, so we are excited to have the Governor’s support.

The Governor’s budget proposal for LGA is encouraging, but there is still a long ways to go until the state budget is finalized. It is vital that we let the Governor know we appreciate his efforts and encourage him to keep up the momentum on LGA.

Take action now! Contact Governor Walz as soon as possible and let him know how important LGA is to your community and thank him for including the $30.5 million LGA increase in his budget recommendations.
