Bonding funds could grow
ST. PAUL - Minnesota senators passed the largest of three public works bills Wednesday, but there is a desire for more.
Moments after senators voted 56-9 to fund $306 million in public works projects, the committee chairman in charge of picking projects to fund said he expects to spend even more.
The House Tuesday night approved $255 million in public works projects, while Gov. Tim Pawlenty asked for $71 million.
