Breakdown Of How Disaster Relief Would Be Spent

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:

— 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.
