Howes On The Bonding Bill

A conference committee has been appointed to iron out the differences between bonding bill versions from the Minnesota House and Senate. Walker Lawmaker Larry Howes said the committee hasn't met yet because the main parties haven't agreed on a price tag. Howes said both Govenor Pawlenty and House Conference Committee Chair Alice Hausman agree that the bonding bill should be $825-Million but State Senator Keith Langseth wants more. The original Senate bill was more than $965-Million and Langseth agreed to lower it to $925-Million and now he wants a counter-offer from the Governor. Howes said its possible that lawmakers wouldn't approve a bonding bill this year but he doesn't think that will happen in an election year.
