Dayton proposes $750 million bonding bill
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton says 21,000 people would get jobs if the Legislature funds his $750 million public works project proposal.
The Democratic governor said he emphasized projects that are ready to begin. They would be funded by the state selling bonds.
The biggest Dayton project is $109 million to begin a major Capitol building renovation project. About $95 million more would be needed next year, he said.
