Release: Rep. Morrison Applauds inclusion of Spring Park Water Project in Local Jobs and Projects Proposal

Wednesday, May 13, 2020


SAINT PAUL, Minn.— This week, the House DFL Majority released their revised Local Jobs and Projects or “bonding” legislative package. The legislation, which is a culmination of 43 committee hearings over the biennium where over 250 individual bills were heard, contains $2.524 billion in renovations, repairs, and replacement of public assets like higher education institutions, clean water infrastructure, correctional facilities, roads and bridges, parks and trails, municipal buildings and more. The proposal includes $1.5 million in funding to improve the city of Spring Park’s water infrastructure.

“Now more than ever, we need to invest in our local communities in all parts of the state,” said Rep. Kelly Morrison (DFL-Deephaven), who has championed the measure for Spring Park residents. “Minnesotans deserve clean drinking water, especially during a public health crisis, and I’m grateful to Chair Mary Murphy for including this critical need into the Local Jobs and Projects bill.”
