Minnesota Senate Democrats came down on their bonding bill number today, $100 million closer to Republicans — but they’re still nearly double GOP lawmakers’ last offer of $800 million.

Lawmakers are trying to agree on a bonding bill for state construction projects with barely over a day remaining to the legislature’s deadline at midnight Sunday.
