Walz seeks new emergency center under public safety plan
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)- Gov. Tim Walz went to the state’s cramped Emergency Operations Center to propose a $29.5 million replacement as part of his $2 billion borrowing proposal for the 2020 legislative session.
The new center is part of a $857 million package the governor proposed Friday of public safety and asset preservation projects. He also proposed $675 million in local projects across Minnesota. And for the first time Walz put a precise total on his overall borrowing proposal, also known as a bonding bill, of $2.028 million. It includes packages that the governor announced earlier for housing, water projects and higher education.
