Governor Tim Walz this afternoon (115pm) signs into law one of Democrats’ top priorities for the 2023 session: free school breakfast and lunch for all Minnesota students, regardless of income.  House Republicans made a last-ditch attempt Thursday afternoon to block the bill, Red Wing Representative Pam Altendorf saying:

“It’s going to be feeding some children that do not need this type of help, in areas like Edina.”

Edina Democrat Heather Edelson responded:

“I want to make it very clear:  We have hungry kids in Edina.  We do.  And if you think our streets are lined with gold, I invite you to my city.  They are not.”
