Saint Paul, MN – State Auditor Blaha issued the following statement upon final passage of the bonding bill.

“I applaud the legislature for passing a bonding bill that will get people back to work,” said Auditor Blaha. “Local governments have been telling us that the loss of revenue will hit them harder the direct COVID-19 costs. Getting the economy rolling again is exactly what local governments need right now to help with these revenue losses.”

“This is really a jobs bill,” added Blaha. “These jobs lift our communities. This bill will not only build infrastructure, but our local economies as well.”
