Gov. Tim Walz reflects on historic legislative session, urges more gun safety measures

OWATONNA, Minn. - Gov. Tim Walz took a victory lap Tuesday in his State of the State speech, recalling the DFL's transformative 2023 legislative session and vowing a renewed push for tougher gun-safety laws and investments in the state's deteriorating infrastructure.

The second-term governor, a former Mankato teacher, spoke from the auditorium of the impressive, airy Owatonna High School that opened last fall, replacing a building that was more than a century old.

Walz likened the action of the DFL majority last session using a "window of opportunity" to Owatonna's tenacity in erecting a state-of-the-art high school that still smells fresh inside and will serve the community for generations.
