Deadly Minnesota Weekend

Written by

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Eight people died in crashes on Minnesota roads over the weekend, making it the deadliest weekend of 2013. The Minnesota State Patrol says three of those victims died in a Sunday crash on Interstate 94 in Minneapolis when some minor contact between three vehicles caused a minivan driver to lose control and rollover. Five others in the minivan were injured.

The names of the victims who died in that crash have not been released. But authorities say they are an 80-year-old woman, a 44-year-old woman, and a 16-year-old male. They weren't wearing seat belts properly. The weekend's fatalities also include a motorcyclist who ran a red light in Brooklyn Park, hitting another vehicle.

State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske urges motorists to buckle up, drive at safe speeds and pay attention.

Minnesota Budget Talks Continue

Written by

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) A $109 million commitment to Capitol preservation is the biggest element of Gov. Mark Dayton plan for Minnesota-financed construction projects. His wish list outlined Monday also includes substantial funding for new labs at public universities, a new building on the Minneapolis Veterans Home campus and civic center improvements in Mankato, Rochester and St. Cloud.

In all, Dayton would finance $812 million worth of projects, relying on more than $720 million in state borrowing and the rest from other sources.

The bonding bill is a rare example this year of where GOP buy-in is necessary. It takes a three-fifths vote to pass one; Democrats are short of that margin on their own. Dayton says low interest rates make it a prime time to borrow.

House Democrats will release their proposal Tuesday.
