Email

ST. PAUL - A proposal to build a 90-bed nursing home in Willmar for veterans with mental illness cleared the Minnesota House today.

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.
