ST. Paul, MN-- Governor Walz announced Thursday, his new revised budget would increase his proposed “Walz Checks” from $500 up to $1000 per married couple and $500 for each single tax filer.

A married couple earning up to $273,470 per year would receive that full payment, while a single person making up to $164,400 would get the $500 check.

In a statement, Walz said, “With a historic surplus, we have an opportunity to provide direct relief to Minnesotans and invest in the future of our state.”

The proposed budget still has to clear the Minnesota House and Senate.
