Pawlenty bonding bill falls flat with local legislators

Email

WILLMAR -- There appears to be bi-partisan disappointment in Gov. Tim Pawlenty's bonding bill.

Sen. Joe Gimse, R-Willmar, said Monday it "doesn't sound like there's going to be much for Greater Minnesota" in the governor's $685 billion bonding bill.

Gimse said he's "a little disappointed" that Pawlenty didn't include more funding for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities and that Ridgewater's request for $14,300,000 was zeroed out.
