Senate DFLers propose borrowing $1.5 billion for capital improvement projects


Senate Democrats on Monday proposed borrowing nearly $1.5 billion to pay for capital improvement projects across the state, setting up a clash with House Republicans who have yet to unveil their much smaller, $600- million bonding plan.

The bonding proposal, or so-called jobs bill, would fund projects at Minnesota colleges and universities, upgrade some roads and bridges, water treatment facilities and improvements to the state's public safety and parks programs. If approved, it would create an estimated 40,000 jobs, Senate DFLers said.
