The article focuses on the bonding plan unveiled by Minnesota Governor Time Pawlenty that has been designed to make up for the legislature's failure last year to approve the state's two-year budget. This bonding plan reflects strategic decisions to keep the quality of life in top and puts emphasis on education and transportation. The proposal unveiled yesterday provides $233 million in education-related funding, including $100 million for the University of Minnesota and another $100 million for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities System.
