Willmar veterans home clears House bonding bill
ST. PAUL -- A proposal to build a 90-bed nursing home in Willmar for veterans with mental illness cleared the Minnesota House on Monday.
As part of the $200 million bonding bill, $5 million was included for the Willmar veterans home.
"It went through and it's in the bill heading to conference committee," said Rep. Al Juhnke, DFL-Willmar.
"Everything on the House side is very good, and we hope we can get some affirmation in the Senate," he said.
