Gov. Walz Signs "Snow Day Relief" Bill

Share This

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.


A group of EDMN leaders who have been working on testifying efforts were invited to attend the bill signing. Our WBLTA President Michael McKenzie is in the second row to the left. In front and to his right is Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, in front to his left is Commissioner of Education Mary Cathryn Ricker, and peeking through to his left is EDMN President Denise Specht.
