County Board

The Winona County Board of Commissioners Tuesday heard an update from DFL State Senator Matt Schmit of Red Wing.

Schmit addressed legislation passed by the 2014 legislature and said the 850-million dollar bonding bill included 240-million dollars for higher education and area projects.

Schmit says more than 100-million dollars was appropriated to supplement gas tax receipts for roads, bridges and vital infrastructure.

Schmit told the commissioners he was happy the 2014 legislative session produced a 1.2-billion dollar surplus so they could fund needed projects and give back about 45-percent to taxpayers with tax cuts and local aid.
