2012 House Bonding Bill Recommendations
The Minnesota House of Representatives is set to unveil its $280 million bonding bill tomorrow afternoon. The proposed bill is nearly $500 million less than that released by Gov. Dayton.
The House version recommends much-needed funding for repairs to local bridges ($20 million) and roads ($10 million) across the state, but lacks significant funding for transit, rail, airport and port projects. The Southwest Corridor LRT project, slated for $25 million under Gov. Dayton's proposal, was not included.
