State Lawmakers Visit Northern Minnesota

By: News Intern Katherine Jones

ST. PAUL- State lawmakers are in northwestern Minnesota today, hearing pitches for projects vying for state bonding dollars.  

House Capital Investment Chair, Mary Murphy of Hermantown says while assembling a bonding bill that ultimately didn’t pass, they heard the local needs of people, agencies and communities.  

Murphy says they were told earlier this year that the amount of a bonding bill could exceed three-point-five-billion dollars.  

The committee was in Detroit Lakes, Moorhead, Thief River Falls and Bemidji yesterday, and will be in Browerville, Little Falls and Becker today.
