Dayton seeks spending for U, buildings and transit in special session; puts tax bill on hold


Gov. Mark Dayton said Wednesday that his price for summoning state legislators back to St. Paul is nearly a quarter of a billion dollars in additional spending over the next three years, and almost as much in additional borrowing for public construction projects.

Dayton’s list of spending and bonding demands primarily benefits public colleges and universities, transit in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, economic development initiatives and the state security hospital in St. Peter, along with a handful of smaller projects, including Fort Snelling renovations.
