HENDERSON, Minn. (KEYC) — Gov. Tim Walz visited the Highway 93 flood improvement project in Henderson Thursday where he highlighted a push for a strong bonding bill.
KEYC reports Walz’s visit to Highway 93 in Henderson occurs days before the current legislative special session ends where bonding bills like the governor’s Local Jobs and Projects Plan are being hashed out.
Under that bonding bill, almost $25 million is proposed for Highway 93 to raise it nearly eight feet above the flood plain which would put a stop to seemingly endless road closures.
But questions to how this bonding bill will flesh out are up in the air as a divided house and senate negotiate aspects of the bonding bill and the pandemic.
The current legislative special session ends Monday.
