Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - Gov. Tim Walz went into a storm sewer to call attention to his proposal for borrowing $300 million to protect Minnesota's water supplies by replacing aging water infrastructure and upgrade treatment facilities.

The Democratic governor's water package is part of what he says will be around a $2 billion borrowing proposal, also known as a bonding bill. It's aimed at helping communities clean up existing contamination and upgrade facilities to prevent pollution from happening. Walz announced his affordable housing proposal a day earlier.

He plans to announce his higher education, public safety and local projects borrowing plans next week.
