HF5: Senate Omnibus Capital Investment Bill (Special Session)

The Senate Omnibus Capital Investment bill appropriates money for the acquisition and betterment of public lands and buildings, and other public improvements of a capital nature, whether from the proceeds of the state general obligation bonds, the general fund, or any other operating fund. Several significant conservation-related appropriations were contained within the bill, including:

  • $116.9 million for the Public Facilities Authority to help local communities with wastewater and drinking water infrastructure needs
  • $25.4 million for the Pollution Control Agency to continue historic pollution remediation within the St. Louis River estuary
  • $10 million for conservation easements to protect clean water via the Reinvest In Minnesota (RIM) program and the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP)
  • $15 million to the Department of Natural Resources for statewide asset preservation

The Minnesota Senate passed the bill with 60 “Yes” votes and 2 “No” votes.  The Governor signed the bill into law.
