ST. PAUL (AP) – A former lawmaker plans to take his fight against a new Senate office building to the Minnesota Supreme Court.

The state Court of Appeals said Tuesday that former Rep. Jim Knoblach of St. Cloud must come up with an $11 million bond if he wants to press his case forward.

Knoblach says he doesn’t have $11 million, so he plans to appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court.

The bond must be posted by next Tuesday. If it is, arguments in the case would be held in June.

The building is projected to cost $90 million. Taxpayers would cover all but $13 million.

The state expects to break ground on the building in July.
