Here is how disaster-relief funding would be spent under a bill Minnesota legislators will debate Friday:
— $25 million, government infrastructure repair to match federal funds.
— $500,000, debris removal and disposal.
— $79 million, repair state and local roads and bridges.
— $15 million, economic development grants.
— $6 million, public facilities grants.
— $12.7 million, housing repair loans and temporary housing.
— $250,000, historic preservation.
— $6.9 million, repair Department of Natural Resources flood damage.
— $10 million, buy or relocate buildings damaged or threatened by flood.
— $2 million, debris removal from public waters.
— $12.5 million, conservation, water quality and erosion work.
— $600,000, agriculture needs.
— $761,000, compensate schools that lose students due to floods and to repair facilities.
— $565,000, Health Department costs.
— $100,000, fix buildings involved in petroleum tank releases.
— $101,000, cost to sell bonds.
— $5.8 million, wind damage in seven northern Minnesota counties.
— $994,000, reforestation after wind damage.

Funds would come from a combination of the state selling bonds and money already in state accounts.
Other provisions in the bill:
— Extend Lake Superior Zoo deadline to June 30, 2015, to spend bond funds approved in previous years.
— Provide aid to cities that lose property taxes due to floods.
— Give some property owners affected by floods longer to pay property taxes.
— Require much of the loan repayment money to be put into accounts to be used in future disasters.
