Dayton threatens bonding bill veto over sprinklers
Gov. Mark Dayton said Monday he will veto a public works bill if the Legislature insists on including language in it that would ban the state from requiring sprinklers in any new homes.
The Minnesota Senate has language in its version of the bonding bill that would do that.
Supporters say the requirement would increase the cost of home construction, but Dayton said the sprinkler ban has no place in the bonding bill.
