International Falls - Representative Rob Ecklund joined The Morning Show with Kris and Will for their weekly scheduled conversation on the heels of a Special Session called by Governor Tim Walz. After being called downtown, the House and Senate were unable to settle the most pressing matter at hand, but they did not leave empty handed.
Thursday, Gov. Walz announced the alllocation of $853 million in relief to communities affected by COVID-19. $12 million will be earmarked for food shelves and food banks in food deserts.
As for the $841 million in remaining funds?
Last week, a collection of 42 Minnesota mayors pled with Gov. Walz to not file an appeal against Enbridge's Line 3 project. Rep. Ecklund shared his opinion on the matter.
