This week, the Minnesota House released a $600 million bonding bill. The bill includes only $10 million general obligation bonds for public housing and no new Housing Infrastructure bonds. While the bill does reauthorize $20 million in housing infrastructure bonds (HIB) from 2014 and 2015, these are not new investments.
Pipeline projects across the state will continue to be delayed if there are no new HIB in this year’s bonding bill.
Please take a moment to urge Speaker Daudt and your House Representative to include $100 million in bonds for housing: $80 million in Housing Infrastructure Bonds and $20 million in General Obligation bonds.
