Minnesota State receives funding from state Legislature, but not at the level it asked

Peter Cox, MPR News, May 23, 2018  (with additional reporting by Winona Daily News)

ST. PAUL -- At session's end, it appears that money for capital improvements at the state's college and university systems came through, but at less than half of what colleges and universities originally requested.

Inside the $825 million bonding bill passed by the state Legislature, there's around $208 million for construction, renovation and maintenance for public higher education systems -- $129 million for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system and about $79 million for the University of Minnesota.

...Locally, Minnesota State College Southeast and Winona State University had maintenance projects they hoped would be funded through HEAPR. If the bonding bill is passed as is, Southeast's would be included, WSU's would not.

"We're very pleased," said Mike Kroening, vice president of finance and administration at Southeast. "Based on preliminary reports, we weren't expecting the number to be that high."
