As mayors from cities across northeastern Minnesota, from Aitkin to the North Shore and Ely to Grand Rapids, we are incredibly disappointed that the Minnesota Legislature failed to pass a bonding bill this session, as is common the even-year of the legislative sessions.  This important investment by the state helps fund capital improvement projects in communities across the state. It’s disappointing that even with a $9+ billion budget surplus, legislative leaders, and the governor couldn’t reach an agreement to get things done for the people of Minnesota.

To be clear, we are appreciative of our northern legislators who sponsored and advocated for so many of our projects.  In particular, we are grateful for Senator Bakk’s work as chair of the Senate Capital Investment Committee.
