Legislative Update: April 17, 2018

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 17, 2018
We are at the point in the Legislative Session where House and Senate Leadership establish spending targets for the various supplemental appropriations bills. The Jobs Bill in the Senate received a very limited spending target – meaning very little in the way of additional resources was committed to this budget area. The only movement on Department of Employment and Economic Development Programs is a recommendation by the Chairman – Senator Jeremy Miller – that $2 million of money from the Minnesota Investment Fund be transferred for use in the Redevelopment Program. There is one appropriation in the amount of $15 million for the Border-to-Border Broadband Program.  

On the House side, Leadership established a supplemental spending target of $15 million for the Jobs and Energy Omnibus Bill. That $15 million is dedicated to the Border-to-Border Broadband Program. This is one-half of the amount recommended by Governor Dayton.

We will be watching as the House and Senate Committees mark-up their supplemental appropriations provisions and we will report on amendments offered and any Committee action on economic development programs.  

If you have any questions regarding our reports, please feel free to contact the Fryberger office at (651) 221-1044 or send an email to, or
