Dayton backs Prospector Loop ATV trail

by Tom Coombe
If at first you don’t succeed, try again.
That’s the approach Gov. Mark Dayton seems to be taking this year by submitting a $1.5 billion bonding proposal that, in many ways, is a rehash of a proposal that failed to take hold after a legislative standoff in 2016.
Two local projects will advance in a big way if lawmakers come to an agreement this time around.
Dayton’s plan includes $1 million for the Prospectors Loop ATV Trail and about $1.6 million to replace roofs on two classroom buildings at Vermilion Community College.
The proposal came as the legislative session opened in St. Paul, with Dayton pressing for action in a bill that he says will result in about 23,000 jobs across the state.
“I’m proposing a bonding bill that should have been passed nine months ago,” Dayton said in a conference call on Wednesday.
It’s the second time around in St. Paul for the ATV trail proposal.
