The Minnesota House Capital Investment Committee learned more Tuesday about the proposed $17.8 million contained in Gov. Tim Walz’s bonding request for the Minnesota Sex Offender Program in St. Peter.
The funding would renovate two buildings on the program’s campus, adding 30 beds to Community Preparation Services, as well as provide more programming and administrative space.
Clients transferred to CPS continue treatment in a less restrictive setting that prepares them to integrate back into the community.
Right now, all 89 beds at CPS are full, with about 50 more clients on the waiting list.
