Minnesota House to Reconvene for Vote on $1.4B Bonding Bill

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota House reconvenes Wednesday for what could be its last chance to pass a $1.37 billion public works construction borrowing package, but it requires at least six Republican votes.

The legislation, known as a bonding bill, requires a 60% supermajority to pass.

And the Democratic-controlled House must approve it before the Republican-controlled Senate can take it up, which could happen Thursday.

The bonding bill is the biggest piece of unfinished business leftover from the 2020 regular session. House Speaker Melissa Hortman said Monday that she was confident of getting six GOP votes by Wednesday.
