St. Paul, MN - Yesterday, on the last day of the 2023 Legislative Session, the Minnesota House passed a bipartisan package of legislation (HF669 and HF670) investing in jobs and infrastructure projects throughout the state. State Representative Dan Wolgamott (DFL - St. Cloud), who serves on the House Capital Investment Committee and helped craft the legislation, secured investments for local projects in St. Cloud.
“I’m excited to return to St. Cloud with a list of accomplishments and investments that will make our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family,” said Rep. Wolgamott. “I’m so proud one of my last votes of the session was to secure funding for local infrastructure projects, including the St. Cloud Children’s Museum, our regional airport, and for CentraCare Health System to build a medical school with the University of Minnesota.”
The package of legislation delivers $7 million for renovations to the Great River Children’s Museum, $3.9 million to the City of St. Cloud for updates to the regional airport, $5 million to cover design for the CentraCare Health System Campus, and $7.5 million to Stearns County for town line road improvements.
Having passed both the House and Senate, the bills now head to Governor Walz for his anticipated signature. Video of Yesterday’s floor debate can be found on the House Public Information YouTube channel.
