Hefty $1.5 billion public works bill fails in Senate by a single vote

 


The Minnesota Senate on Wednesday unexpectedly shot down a massive, $1.5 billion public works and infrastructure package, splintering a long tradition of bipartisan support for distributing state money to projects intended to boost local economies.

Hundreds of Minnesota cities and townships would have benefited from spending in the proposal, which emphasized transportation improvements, public campus buildings and water treatment upgrades. Supporters promised it would have generated tens of thousands of jobs.
