Bonding bill 'dessert' a Minnesota legislative debate

 


ST. PAUL -- Dessert is pretty important to Paul Torkelson.

As strange as it sounds, that is one of the major holdups in getting legislative work done this year.

Torkelson, a Republican state representative from Hanska, famously calls a public works spending bill, to be financed by the state selling bonds, the "dessert" of the legislative session. That has drawn attacks from Democrats who think bonding is a main course.
