Gov. Tim Walz spoke after taking the oath of office at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Minn.

Gov. Tim Walz wants to raise state aid to local governments by about $30 million, a proposal drawing praise from city leaders across Minnesota who are relying more on property taxes as state funding has diminished.

"There is not a community out there that you don't hear about this," Walz said Wednesday. "And I think that I'll get Republican support on this because this is a principle that they believe in solidly too. That the closer you get to the decisionmaking of the people, sometimes you get better results."
