A nearly $500 million public works bill that includes funding to expand The Hormel Institute in Austin is headed to DFL Gov. Mark Dayton. The Minnesota House on Tuesday approved the bonding bill as amended by the Senate. The bill includes $13.5 million to build a 56,000-square-foot addition to the Hormel Institute. That additional space would house 15 state-of-the-art research labs and technology space that would support a new cancer research partnership with Mayo Clinic.
