Plan for vets facility stalls; Juhnke says sens. do not support bill
WILLMAR -- A funding bill for a veterans home in Willmar has stalled out in the Minnesota Legislature and is unlikely to see any further action before the session ends next week.
"At the end of the day, frankly, we could not get the senators to support it," Rep. Al Juhnke, DFL-Willm-ar said.
The House has approved the 90-bed facility in both its bonding bill and omnibus bill, said Juhnke.
