Governor Dayton’s $1.4 billion bonding request is the largest capital investment package ever proposed in Minnesota. The proposed bill would finance numerous public works projects throughout the state. And, according to estimates from the governor’s office, create 39,000 jobs. The bill "will strengthen our communities and improve the lives of Minnesotans," says Lt. Governor Tina Smith. Notably, $90 million of this request is earmarked for affordable housing.
