Miller votes no on COVID-19 bill


(St. Paul, MN) -- A 330-million-dollar coronavirus response package is on its way to Governor Tim Walz after passing the Minnesota House and Senate. Representative Tim Miller says it was the first time he had been back in St. Paul in a week-and-a-half, and they made sure there was social distancing...

...Miller says he voted against the bill...

...The measure includes 200-million dollars to establish a COVID-19 Minnesota Fund. There's also funding for child care providers, homeless services, small businesses, veterans, college students and food shelves. Miller says it was filled with special interest influence, and half the day cares in his district would not qualify for assistance. He also said the bill did not fund loans for all small businesses, but gave tribal casinos 11 million dollars in cash.
