Governor would veto bonding over sprinkler provision
ST. PAUL — Gov. Mark Dayton dropped a legislative bombshell Monday when he announced that he is willing to give up $846 million in public works projects around Minnesota if legislators insist on overturning a state requirement for fire sprinklers in larger new homes.
“I will veto the bonding bill if it has that provision in it,” Dayton said. “I will not let them ram it down my throat.”
