ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Lawmakers weighing where to send public construction aid are touring several Minnesota cities with projects in the 2014 mix.

Members of the Senate Capital Investment Committee are headed to eight cities this week after spending three days on the road earlier in the month. Their House counterparts have also been taking a closer look at proposals.

Next year, lawmakers expect to fashion a public construction bill that is likely to authorize hundreds of millions of dollars in state borrowing.

The latest leg in the Senate tour starts Wednesday in Southwestern Minnesota and continues through Friday. Stops include: Faribault, St. Peter, Mankato, Jackson, Marshall, Granite Falls, Willmar, New London and Shakopee.
