The Minnesota Building and Construction Trades Council held a press conference on the Capitol steps last July on the Legislature's failure to pass a bonding bill in the second special session.

Minnesota leaders have failed to devote significant dollars to roads, buildings and other infrastructure the past two years, compounding an expensive backlog of statewide needs.

Now legislators are contemplating fast action to catch up, with some eyeing two rounds of construction money in one year.

"These same projects are going to cost more the longer we wait," said Tom Dicklich of the Minnesota Building and Construction Trades Council.
