"It's really critical for us to come here with an open heart and mind"

The Minnesota House Capital Investment Committee is in the Northland this week to tour several projects in Duluth and on the Range in advance of the 2022 Legislative session.

The tour is one of five the group will be hosting around the state. With five billion dollars in bonding requests pending and an excellent credit rating, the chairman of the committee, Rep. Fue Lee says there's an opportunity to tackle some of these critical infrastructure projects without a high interest rate.
