Communities pitch public work projects
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota communities have plenty of suggestions for how to spend state dollars borrowed for public works projects. In fact, they have too many. State lawmakers and Gov. Mark Dayton are working to whittle down more than 150 requests topping $3 billion for trails, civic...

ST. PAUL -- Passing a public works funding bill, for projects like constructing buildings and fixing state facilities, may be tough this year. As Minnesota legislators left on an extended Passover-Easter break Thursday, there was no sign how the so-called bonding bill can pass. In...

Bridges get boost in bonding bill

Bonding bill faces unfriendly future
ST. PAUL - A bill borrowing almost $1 billion appeared late Monday to be headed for hostile territory, Gov. Tim Pawlenty's desk. An hour before the House began debate on the public works funding bill Monday night, Gov. Tim Pawlenty sent a letter to lawmakers saying he would veto...

Editorial: Entire area will see bonding benefits
On Tuesday's opinion page, we made note that the City of Worthington -- by means of $800,000 in grant money for work at the former Campbell Soup Co. site -- is a big winner in the 2008 bonding bill. In fact, it should be duly noted that southwest Minnesota wins with this legislation....

Letter: Investment package contains many area funding provisions
Gov. Pawlenty made the right choice by line-item vetoing 52 provisions out of the 2008 Capital Investment legislation rather than vetoing the bill in its entirety. The bill, which totaled $925 million when it reached the Governor's desk, now totals $717 million. Pawlenty had previously...

I'm pleased that Gov. Pawlenty decided to line-item veto the 2008 Capital Investment bill as opposed to vetoing the entire proposal. The plan, which funds construction projects throughout the state, totaled $925 million, which Pawlenty said was too expensive. House Republicans supported...
