WSU-Education Village-Bill



Winona State University received some cautious good news Tuesday when it learned its Education Village proposal is fully funded in the proposed Minnesota House bonding bill.

The University is seeking some 23-million dollars for converting three buildings on Lafayette Street into the so-called Education Village complex.

Winona Representative Gene Pelowsk said the project is fully funded in the bill proposed by House bonding committee chair Alice Hausman who calls it a balanced approach for projects across the state.

WSU was earmarked to get 5.8 million dollars for the Education Village in Governor Mark Dayton's bonding proposal.
               
The Hausman proposal will need both the Senate and Governor's blessings before WSU actually gets the full funding.

The House bill contains 850-million dollars worth of proposed borrowing and another 125-million dollars in projects that would be paid for in cash.
