The Minnesota Legislature is in its final weekend of the regular season. State Senator Nick Frentz of North Mankato if lawmakers can reach an agreement on a bonding bill, the Mankato area will benefit.
“That includes the Mankato water quality project, the St. Peter Regional Treatment Facility, the Armstrong Hall Project at MSU, and the BCA Office in Mankato,” said Frentz. “We want those projects to go through because they mean jobs and will stimulate the economy.”
Frentz says there’s a high standard to reach if a bonding bill is going to move forward.
“Three-fourths of both chambers need to agree for a bonding bill to even get to the Governor,” said Frentz. “That requires bi-partisanship. And I must say, sometimes we’re in precious short supply of that.”
The session is scheduled to end Monday night.
