Lobbyist Tom Hanson Discusses Minnesota's "Bonding-to-Create-Jobs" Strategy in Finance & Commerce

Winthrop & Weinstine, P.A., lobbyist Tom Hanson talks about unspent bonding money with Finance & Commerce. The article, “Unspent bonding money totals $1.2B,” discusses the “bonding-to-create-jobs” strategy. Most bonding projects haven’t been started yet, and that means those projects haven’t created jobs. Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has recommended $531 million for bonding for new projects, but as Tom, former commissioner of Minnesota Management & Budget (MMB), says, “We have to be careful not to make it too easy to do $1 billion bonding bills every year…they can be addicting” (qtd. in Johnson).
