MN Bonding Bill

Minnesota Governor Tim Walz has unveiled the third part of his Local Jobs and Projects plan for higher education facilities across the state. The proposals seeks to invest 488-million dollars in higher education – including 447-million in bonding to maintain…upgrade…and modernize college campuses. Walz says outdated technology doesn’t just hold students back – it holds Minnesota back.
The governor says the list of proposed projects is not the Walz-Flanagan bonding bill - but one that Minnesotans have asked for.
The project list include $2.2 million dollars to update campus labs at N-C-T-C.
Walz proposed 276 million dollars for affordable housing and 300 million for water infrastructure projects last week. The governor will promote a plan for public safety projects later this week.
