Minnesota Senate passes bonding bill

ST. PAUL, Minn. (FOX47) — The Minnesota Senate voted on Thursday to pass the long-debated bonding bill.

This was eight months in the making, long delayed during a pandemic and legislative gridlock. The $1.9 billion package was created to fund construction projects across the state.

The bill passed with a 64-3 vote in the Senate. It passed in the House on Wednesday by a 100 to 34 margin, with many Republicans joining Democrats in passing it. The next step will be for the bill to be signed by Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz.
