Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan greeted students at the University of Minnesota's Institute of Child Development Wednesday.

Gov. Tim Walz visited a cramped, aging child research center at the University of Minnesota on Wednesday, hoping to rally support for a major borrowing package to pay for public works projects around the state, including upgrading decrepit university buildings, replacing aging water infrastructure and fixing roads and bridges.

"This is a world-class institution," Walz boasted of the U's Institute on Child Development, which is said to be one of the best in the country, with a focus that includes closing achievement gaps and treating autism spectrum disorder. "But they're working in second- and third-rate facilities."
