Minnesota Legislature News: Senate bonding bill differs from House, Dayton plans
ST. PAUL -- A Senate committee vote this morning sets up complex three-way negotiations about funding public works projects.
The Senate Capital Investment Committee overwhelmingly approved selling $496 million in bonds to fund public works projects such as fixing state facilities and helping communities pay for sewer systems.
It is the third proposal and falls in the middle of the other two. A House bill would spend $280 million, and Gov. Mark Dayton proposes $761 million.
