House passes major jobs, ag, environment budget bill; wide gulf with Senate


The Republican-controlled House passed a major environment, agriculture and jobs bill after hours of debate on Wednesday, leaving a wide gulf between the House and Senate, which have until May 23 to finish work for the year.

House Republicans, led by Rep. Pat Garofalo, R-Farmington, chairman of a key jobs committee, cut about $20 million from existing economic development programs called the Minnesota Investment Fund and the Job Creation Fund for new spending on broadband Internet expansion, the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System, workforce housing and economic disparities, among many other programs.
