Can Minnesota leaders pass an early $1.9B infrastructure package?
March 6, 2023
A Minnesota infrastructure plan would repair leaking roofs in college buildings, improve dangerous local roads and fix aging trails and community centers.
The fate of the $1.9 billion deal could be decided Monday. Legislators who negotiated the agreement - which is on par with a record-setting 2020 state construction package - are waiting to see whether it holds or disintegrates on the House floor.
"There will be some people who are looking to leverage something, and they may vote no on the bill," said Rep. Dean Urdahl, the GOP lead on infrastructure negotiations. "But there likely are going to be more than enough [votes] to pass the bill from Republicans."
