Minnesota Gov Anticipates Big Funding for Infrastructure Next Session

Oct. 24, 2023
Historic package could make up for lost year 2022

Minneseota Gov. Tim Walz recently estimated that next year the state legislature will consider a $1 billion infrastructure package to fund infrastructure and public works projects. 

Earlier this year, the legislature approved a $2.6 billion infrastructure packagethe largest in state historyto fund projects like improving roads, bridges and water treatment plants, among others. 

House Speaker Melissa Hortman said during the legislative session earlier this year that the historic 2023 package would merely help catch up from the lost year of 2022 when agreements on a package fell through, and that lawmakers would likely seek another bonding bill in 2024.  

Walz took a tour of St. Paul College on Monday, with administrators pointing out potential improvements, including more usable spaces for students. 

“Whether that’s roads and bridges, clean water infrastructure, or investments in modernizing our state’s higher education, a strong infrastructure plan creates jobs while helping ensure every community across Minnesota prospers,” Walz said at the event.
