Gov. Walz Signs "Snow Day Relief" Bill

Governor Tim Walz signed the "Snow Day Relief" bill yesterday. The bill holds school districts harmless for the up to 15 days some of them had off for weather emergencies. More importantly, it allows districts to not make the days up and requires them to pay hourly employees for lost time.
