With bonding bill failure, status of Bemidji-area projects up in the air

BEMIDJI—Two multimillion-dollar projects planned for Bemidji went down with the state's bonding bill as legislators quarreled Sunday over funding for transportation and public works.

Both local projects had received support from Gov. Mark Dayton and the DFL-controlled Senate. "It's a devastating blow," said Jeanne...

Blame in the air at Minnesota Capitol after disappointing close of session

Gov. Mark Dayton scolded state legislators Monday for letting their session end without a compromise on more than a billion dollars in proposed spending on transportation and public works bonding projects, but he was noncommittal about whether he’d summon them back this year to try again. “It’s disappointing to say the least that the session ended without a transportation bill and without a bonding bill,” said Dayton, about 14 hours after the Legislature’s 11-week session broke down in acrimony between the DFL-led Senate and the...
