Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz unveiled the provisions inside his “One Minnesota Budget” plan on Tuesday. It included direct payments for millions of residents in the state and tax cuts for seniors.

Gov. Walz said on Tuesday, “Today, we lay out the full picture of how this budget will lower costs, cut taxes, and improve lives for Minnesotans. With the largest tax cut in state history, the One Minnesota Budget invests directly in the people that made our state strong in the first place.”
According to a published report in Bring Me The News, Gov. Walz also mentioned that an amount of up to $10,000 will be given to a middle-class family-of-four if this will become a state law. He added, “We are delivering a transformational budget for Minnesotans, and I look forward to getting this done.
