One week after a marathon special session that saw lawmakers pass most of the major budget bills needed to fund the state’s government over the next two years, Gov. Tim Walz on Friday signed those bills into law.

After signing the omnibus education finance bill during a ceremony Thursday at Bruce Vento Elementary School in St. Paul, the governor issued a release Friday morning announcing he has now signed each of the 13 bills passed during last week’s special session, which concluded shortly before 7:00 a.m. May 25.

“At a time when politics is filled with chaos and division, Minnesota is showing the rest of the nation there’s another way to govern,” Walz said in a statement. “We can work together. We can find compromise. And in one of the only divided legislatures in the country, we can overcome differences and put together a budget that improves lives. We set out to make meaningful investments in health care, education, and community prosperity, and that’s exactly what this budget does.”

These are the special session omnibus budget bills the governor signed:
