Minn. Governor to Release State Construction "Wish List"

Posted: Updated:

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - State Capitol repairs, civic center expansions and veterans home upgrades are all expected to have a place in Gov. Mark Dayton's plan for Minnesota-financed construction projects. Dayton has dropped those hints and others ahead of Monday's official release of his wish list. He has said he would press for $750 million in state borrowing. 

The bonding bill is a rare example this year of where GOP buy-in is necessary. It takes a three-fifths vote to pass one and Democrats are short of that margin on their own. Republicans have generally supported devoting money to the state Capitol renovation, but House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt says lawmakers should worry about balancing the state budget before taking up a bonding bill. 

House Democrats were set to outline their proposal on Tuesday.
