Republicans want Senate building killed


ST. PAUL -- Republican senators say they want a proposed Minnesota Senate office building plan canceled.

Some will have a chance to talk about it and vote against it Wednesday, when the Senate Rules Committee is supposed to decide whether construction will begin. The Democratic-controlled committee is expected to produce enough votes.

However, the House Rules Committee also needs to approve the building, and there are more problems expected in that panel.
