Governor Walz Signs Bonding Bill


Governor Tim Walz signed a 1.9 billion dollar public works bill into law Wednesday that he said will improve Minnesota’s infrastructure and ensure construction crews are kept busy as the economy digs out from a recession.

The bill will take hundreds of projects from conception to reality across the state and includes 5.5 million dollars for a new hangar at the Thief River Falls Regional Airport and 18 million to replace the Lake Bronson Dam.

The plan will allow for the sale of bonds to pay for new or refurbished buildings, replaced roads and bridges, fixed up trails and water treatment plants and much more.

Walz said his administration will explore selling the bonds sooner than usual to lock in the best rates.
