Bonding bill still up in the air

ROCHESTER, Minn. – The 2014 legislative session is expected to finish up Monday in St. Paul, but there is still much do for lawmakers.

That includes the nearly billion dollar bonding bill that’s supported by Governor Mark Dayton. In that bill includes more than $30 million toward the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester. Although it’s pretty late in the game, city officials said they are looking forward to what happens next. “We have provided a lot of information on the benefits of the project, which have been well received by the leaders of the house and senate on the bonding bill,” Assistant Rochester City Administrator Gary Neumann said.

Neumann said the bill has been in the works for years.
