Saint Paul, Minn. – Today the Governor signed the bipartisan Capital Investment package that includes $846 million in GO bonds and an additional bill that includes $200 million in further investments in infrastructure projects into law. The bills include priorities with statewide significance, focusing on higher education, regional assets, transportation, housing, and basic infrastructure, as well as funding to complete the remaining renovation of the State Capitol. The bills are expected to create an estimated 33,000 jobs across the state.
Rep. Alice Hausman, Chair of the House Capital Investment Committee, issued the following statement.
“Over the past two years, we’ve traveled across the state to meet with local officials and find out more about many of the nearly $4 billion in projects that were requested. The truth is, nearly every one of these projects would have been worthy of being funded. The projects that do make it into the final bill will support the infrastructure that we need in place in order for us to be economically healthy and competitive, both now and in the future.”
