According to Twincities.com, the Governor Mark Dayton of Minnesota has planned for $986 million of state funding to be used for construction projects ranging from civic center upgrades to college campuses.
Dayton proposed his wish list to the Legislature. The larger projects on the list are needed to pass because they involve the state borrowing for the necessary funding. The largest project on the list is the restoration of the state Capitol with a cost of $126 million, with the largest category being higher education consuming $233 million of the proposed plan. There are also projects on the list for local communities to improve facilities throughout.
