Mark Dayton, lawmakers agree to fix what MN owns first, but differ on what to spend

Fix what we’ve already got.

That’s the clear message from Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and the Republicans who control the Minnesota Legislature when it comes to spending on public works projects this year.

Senate Republicans joined the chorus Wednesday when they unveiled their plan to borrow $825 million to pay for maintaining hundreds of aging state-owned buildings, repairing roads and bridges, fixing worn-out sewer and water systems and preserving other state-owned property — all before they spend a ton of money on glitzy new projects.
