House passed bonding bill; heads to Senate
The Minnesota House this afternoon passed a public works finance bill 99-32 that would spend nearly a half billion dollars on a wide range of projects, ranging from beginning a several-year Capitol building renovation project to fixing college buildings.
Senators could take up the measure later today.
In general, Democrats wanted to spend more money while Republicans preferred less. Rep. Larry Howes, R-Walker, said his bill is a compromise.
