Minnesota Legislature Roundup: Senate bonding bill sets up three-way talks

The final of the three public works funding plans, from Senate Republicans, overwhelmingly earned its initial committee passage Wednesday. It would spend $496 million, between House Republicans' $280 million and Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton's $756 million.
