Capitol Building Repair Bonds 05 Apr 12

A $200-plus-million bonding package to repair and renovate the State Capitol building could come up for a vote as early as today (THU) in the Minnesota House.  There’s general agreement that the Minnesota Capitol is in need of major repair and upgrading, but how soon to do it is still under debate.  The House bill would proceed much more quickly on the project than in the Senate version.  Working out a compromise is one of the major items on lawmakers’ agenda before the legislature’s target date to adjourn at the end of the month.
