Minnesota legislature looking to pass bonding bill

by

The Minnesota legislature is gathering this week, and one of their top-priorities for the week will be to pass a new bonding bill.

The bill will be tough to pass, as it must be both balanced and bipartisan. Minnesota is one of the only states that has a democratic house and a republican senate. In order to be approved, the new legislature must appeal to both liberal and conservative interests.

For the bill to pass, it must reach at least a 60 percent majority vote in each house. This means that it must receive at least six votes from republicans in the house, and six from the democrats of the senate in order to pass.
