Rochester and Mankato were also asking for money for civic centers.  St. Cloud wanted $10 million to build a parking ramp and for upgrades to the facility along the river front.

The $469 million bonding bill will be voted-on on Monday.

Money for the St. Cloud prison was also left out of the bill, but $4 million for the St. Cloud Technical and Community College is in there.

Banaian says he’s not sure how he’ll vote on the bill. It needs 60% of the lawmakers to vote in favor of it to pass.
