Local legislator to continue to advocate for local projects seeking state bonding dollars

A bonding bill for state public works projects will be part of budget negotiations in the final weeks of the legislative session.  KAUS spoke with District 27 Senator Gene Dornink, a Republican from Hayfield who stated that he will continue to advocate for $7.4 million in bonding dollars for the city of Austin’s wastewater treatment facility renovation project, and for $7.5 million in bonding dollars to complete the final phase of a dredging project on Fountain Lake in Freeborn County, which includes dredging of the east basin of Fountain Lake’s main bay from near City Beach to the Fountain Lake Dan, along with limited dredging of Bancroft Bay….

House Democrats have proposed a roughly $1 billion bonding bill for state public works projects, double what Governor Tim Walz proposed, and on the heels of last year’s record-breaking 1.9-billion-dollar bonding package.
