Legislators want theme song for State Capitol

A bill introduced on Monday would spend $5,000 to commission original music to be played at the Minnesota State Capitol’s reopening celebration this August.

Brian Bakst of Minnesota Public Radio:

“It’s a great celebration. It’s a state building; it’s a state project. We’re all very proud,” [Sen. Jim] Abeler said. “What better than to have an original song to celebrate that written by the Minnesota State Band and all those incredible musicians.”

The grant would come out of the state’s cultural and heritage fund, which is fed by a voter-approved sales tax. That means it wouldn’t compete with money for schools, health care or other basic state programs.
