State senators to take metro tour of possible bonding bill projects

Minnesota state senators working on the bonding bill will visit many Twin Cities locations next week as they sort out which projects to include in the bill.

While about $3 billion in potential infrastructure projects have been requested for inclusion in the bill, the governor has proposed spending about $1 billion on projects this session.

Already legislators have toured many sites around the state as they try to get firsthand looks at the needs. They will conclude their field trips with a four-day swing to many of the Twin Cities sites before session hearings begin and the hard choices are made.

  • The Dorothy Day Center, St. Paul
