Senator Jason Isaacson 2020 bonding request

SAINT PAUL, Minn.— Today, the Minnesota Senate Capital Investment Committee held its first hearing on the 2020 bonding bill. The Committee has spent several months traveling Minnesota touring projects that were seeking bonding money. This year alone, the state has received more than $5.3 billion in bonding requests for projects throughout the state. With only two weeks left to negotiate a final package, Senator Jason Isaacson releases the following statement: 

“Now more than ever, we must take thoughtful action in investing in our infrastructure. Passing a robust bonding bill will get Minnesotans back to work, help stimulate Minnesota’s economy, and strengthen our recovery from the effects of COVID-19. As we look at infrastructure improvements, the bonding bill should be at least $2 billion, and must include a major investment in HEAPR (Higher Education Asset Preservation and Replacement). It is crucial we fund HEAPR to maximize the overall experience and education at the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota State College and University System. This funding is critical for these two institutions to improve the health, safety, and accessibility for staff and students on these campuses. Now is the time for us to make a strong investment in the assets that make our state great.”
