Flood relief legislation for the Southeast Minnesota floods passed during a 2007 special session is modified by a new law signed by the governor May 12.

The law, sponsored by Rep. Loren Solberg (DFL-Grand Rapids) and Sen. Sharon Erickson Ropes (DFL-Winona), adds a requirement that any local government or state agency that receives federal money for a project that was funded by the state must repay the state for any amount that is over the FEMA payment and the state match for the project.

It takes effect Aug. 1, 2008.
