For housing advocates in Minnesota, 2012 is an exciting year at the state capitol. Bonding, bonding, bonding is the word, with housing advocates coming together in unprecedented ways to support investment of state dollars in housing. Two bonding bills for housing have been introduced, similar in all ways except for the amounts they would generate for housing. One includes $32 million for housing (part of the Governor's bonding bill), and the other is a larger $40 million stand-alone housing bonding bill. The voices of advocates are being heard, and the optimism is contagious.
