Senate Rules Committee
A Minnesota Senate committee has approved preliminary plans for a new legislative office building despite attempts by Republicans to delay its construction. The planned building for senators and staff next to the Capitol is projected to cost $63 million, plus $27 million for adjacent parking facilities.
The state Senate’s chief Republican says Democrats should delay a vote that would allow plans to move forward for a $63 million Capitol office building and $27 million parking structure.
Taxpayers are picking up another large bill for legal fees in the Minnesota Senate.
