ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota House is set to vote on a package of new spending on programs aimed at creating jobs.

The House is in a Monday afternoon session debating its omnibus jobs, commerce and housing bill. The Democratic-sponsored bill would boost spending at the Department of Employment and Economic Development in the next two years by more than 50 percent compared to the previous two.

The bill's author, Rep. Joe Mahoney of St. Paul, says it's a new approach to promoting employment by spending more on job training, grants and loans to small businesses, scholarships and apprenticeships. The bill spends $140 million on jobs and economic development programs and boosts spending on the affordable housing programs by $22 million.

The House proposal tops Gov. Mark Dayton by about $5 million in proposed spending increases on employment and economic development programs.
