Pawlenty's bonding bill

Governor Pawlenty has released his bonding proposals. The full cost is close to $900 million (see the executive summary here). It doesn't look like a bad start. $60 million for the Northstar corridor is in there, which is great news. If there are any deficiencies, it looks like they are in the higher ed section, according to House and Senate members. The only thing I really noticed was $26.6 million for expansion of the Carlson School of Management at the U of M, simply because I remember when the current building wasn't finished; it's less than a decade old.

I do get the feeling that the final bill will be larger than this.
