ST. PAUL, MN (STL.News) Governor Tim Walz delivered his fourth State of the State address to a joint convention of the Minnesota Legislature.  The Governor highlighted three areas of focus: long-term investments in the future of Minnesota, urgent issues facing Minnesotans coming out of the pandemic, and unfinished business that must be resolved now.
