Minnesota $729 Million Renovation

State Office Building renovation, called ‘fiscal insanity,’ to begin next month

House Republicans and DFLers have argued over the scope of the project and price tag, which could approach $729 million after interest accrues.

Despite repeated complaints from several Republican legislators over the last year on the size and scope of what will turn out to be the costliest Minnesota Capitol renovation in state history, work on the State Office Building project is expected to begin in just a matter of weeks.
While the project is expected to have an impact on the daily tasks of those engaged in legislative activities for the next three sessions, some lawmakers want to make sure the cost to taxpayers doesn’t go unnoticed.
