Dayton wants $1 billion in bonding; he suggests half of projects
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton today offered a unique proposal: The Legislature should pass a $1 billion public works funding bill, but the Democratic governor only proposed half of the projects.
Dayton suggested the Legislature pick the other half of the projects.
However, Republican leaders say they oppose a so-called bonding bill this year, other than disaster and other urgent needs.
"I will sign what they send," Dayton said. "I can't force it to go higher."
