ST. PAUL (LEARFIELD)  —  Maybe the fifth time is the charge.  The Minnesota House could vote on the statewide bonding bill today (Wednesday) and, if that vote is taken, the Senate would vote Thursday.

Lawmakers returned to the Capitol Monday for a fifth special session.  Delays have been caused when lawmakers connected the need for various infrastructure projects with the governor’s peacetime emergency powers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With some of the concerns resolved, there is hope the gridlock will be broken and the votes will be taken.
