Minn. Senators support bonding to fix nation's infrastructure
Minnesota's two U.S. senators and one from South Dakota are among those who want to borrow $50 billion to improve the country's transportation infrastructure.
Sens. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn.; Norm Coleman, R-Minn; and John Thune, R-S.D., say their "Build America Bonds" plan is a one-time federal borrowing program that could create 2.5 million construction jobs and save lives.
