Republicans in the Minnesota House have rolled out a $600-million bonding proposal for state public works projects — less than half the $1.5 billion that Governor Mark Dayton wants. House Capital Investment Committee Chairman Dean Urdahl from Grove City says the focus is on improving infrastructure and sticking with priorities during what is *not* a bonding year. $240 million in the bill would go for transportation projects, which Democrats argue should be funded a different way and just takes away from other important projects. House Republicans’ proposal links bonding — something from 2016 left undone — with another thorny issue, namely transportation funding. In addition to that, lawmakers and Governor Dayton are trying to get agreement on the state budget with under three weeks remaining in the legislative session.
