Bemidji Senator Mary Olson on Bonding

Bemidji State Senator Mary Olson has had a successful year in promoting public projects and getting them paid for. Olson said the Construction Projects bill signed by Governor Pawlenty this week was pretty good for District 4 but especially good for Bemidji. Olson said there was money for the hospital project in Walker, $20-Million for a Bemidji convention center, and money to finish paving the Paul Bunyan Recreation Trail. Olson said she believes there may be more projects bonded for before the end of this legislative session. She said many St. Paul Senators would like to see money for the Central Corridor Light Rail Project and the Governor would like money spent to prepare for the Republican Convention as well as money for a new state park near Lake Vermillion. The session ends on May 19th.
