Mark Dayton proposed a $1 billion bonding bill today, including $20 million in bonds for construction of a baseball stadium — the local leaders like the word ballpark better – for the St. Paul Saints minor league baseball team.

The city is tossing $10 million into the idea, and the Saints are adding another $10 million.

It could be another shot in the arm for Lowertown, if it survives the Legislature.
