Rental space for Minn. senators: $2.4M to $2.9M

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Department of Administration officials estimate it would cost at least $2.4 million to rent temporary space for state senators and staff during the ongoing Capitol renovation.

Administration officials gave a range Thursday that runs as high as $2.9 million per year, not counting the yet-known costs of retrofitting rental space. The estimate is based on a need to find at least 135,000 square feet nearby.

It's part of a debate over where to put senators now and later, and whether a controversial Senate office building project goes forward.

The new Senate building and a related parking ramp project have been priced at $90 million.

The House Rules and Administration Committee is the last legislative hurdle for the new office project. But it is also the subject of a lawsuit.
