Governor signs heating assistance bill

Low-income Minnesota residents will be able to stay warm through the remainder of the Polar Vortex and beyond.

On Friday, the governor signed a bill that will add $20 million from the General Fund to the LIHEAP energy assistance program. The money will supplement federal funding that is set run out in early March. If all of the $20 million is not used by June 30, 2014, the remaining funds will go back into the General Fund.

Sponsored by Rep. Joe Radinovich (DFL-Crosby) and Sen. Tom Saxhaug (DFL-Grand Rapids), the law is effective March 1, 2014.
