The governor is pushing for a deal with lawmakers on state aid for restaurants and bars that are again shut down due to the COVID pandemic, plus an unemployment benefits extension for workers. Walz hasn’t committed to a dollar amount but says next week’s economic forecast…

“That will give us a better idea, what the pay-for will look like, how we will do it and what our capacity is.”

Walz says he wants to call a special session as soon as there’s a deal with lawmakers, hopefully, next week.
