PRESTON — Construction is expected to begin in a few weeks on a state cemetery in Fillmore County that is expected to become the final resting place for an estimated 35,000 veterans.

All that's left is for the U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki to give final approval to the $10.1 million project. Once that happens, the county officially will donate the land to the state. The state already has sought construction bids for the project and plans to award the bid as soon as the project gets the final OK, said David Swantek, director of the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Little Falls.

Should Rep. Kurt Daudt resign as Speaker of the House?

Minutes before adjournment, the Minnesota House passed a 93-page jobs bill that had just cleared the Senate. Democrats protested, arguing they did not have time to read the measure. House Speaker Kurt Daudt, a Republican from Crown, dismissed the Democrats' protests and called for a vote. The bill passed 75-9, with just 84 of the 134 House members voting.
