Leader Hortman Statement on Governor Dayton’s Bonding Recommendations

Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Today, Governor Dayton released his 2018 bonding recommendations, which will create an estimated 22,950 jobs.

House DFL Leader Melissa Hortman released the following statement:

"We need to invest in Minnesota's roads, bridges, state assets, and historical landmarks. Importantly, the bonding bill will create more than 20,000 quality jobs throughout the state, helping Minnesota families to be more economically secure.

"Given today's interest rates, it’s important we pass a robust bonding bill this session. Inflation and Federal Reserve rate increases are on the horizon, so we will get more for Minnesotans by acting now.

“I’m encouraged by Governor Dayton’s recommendations for significant investment in our state. I look forward to working together to pass a robust bonding bill this session that will create jobs and improve infrastructure in Minnesota."
