ST. PAUL – Minnesota’s Democratic-led Legislature is ready to send Republican Gov. Tim Pawlenty a public works funding bill he doesn’t like, setting the stage for a possible veto and a new attempt to fund projects ranging from college buildings to passenger rail lines.
We're well into this bonding session and making important progress on legislative initiatives that will work to stimulate Minnesota's economy. I want to share with you some of the merits of key legislation and how they will benefit Minnesotans.
ST. PAUL – Minnesota’s bonding bill has three personalities – the public discussion about what public works projects will be funded, the insider talk about how many jobs it may create and the ultra-insider debate over how much interest the state can afford to repay on money borrowed for the projects.
ST. PAUL – Minnesota Senate Democrats want to spend more money on college building renovation and other public works projects than the governor, saying success in passing a transportation funding bill freed money for projects they otherwise could not afford.
While both budget bills and bonding reflect our values as a state and society, it is bonding, with its long-term outlook, that offers a vision of the future — our road map to a vital, prosperous Minnesota.
