Good thing we have the DFL around to teach us how to railroad through borrowing $1 Billion dollars of additional debt without debate. You\’d think the legislature would at least TRY to balance the budget before borrowing another billion.
And while the following projects may well have merit, when this state has a budget deficit in the BILLIONS, is now really the time?
Bemidji Headwaters Science Center $475,000
MN African-American History Museum & Cultural Center $840,000
Mankato Civic Center and All Seasons Arenas $13,900,000
Minneapolis Orchestra Hall $17,000,000
Rochester-Mayo Civic Center Complex $28,000,000
St. Cloud Civic Center Expansion $15,100,000
Ordway Center for the Performing Arts $16,000,000
Apparently according to the, there is never a time to waste more taxpayer dollars and ring up more debt.
