Political analyst Steven Schier from Carleton College says Governor Mark Dayton’s 1.4-billion-dollar bonding proposal is not likely to pass the legislature without significant scaling-back. He says House Republicans will be skeptical about some large projects in the Twin Cities and “they will insist upon it being rolled back closer to the traditional level of around a billion dollars.” Schier adds it’s unclear whether the 2016 legislature will be able to pass a jobs package for Minnesota’s communities of color. Schier says Democrats and Republicans aren’t even close. Governor Mark Dayton pushed for a special session to address the issue but that’s not likely to happen. The legislature goes back in session March 8th.
