CHICAGO - The Minnesota Metropolitan Airports Commission will vote next month on a $125.8 million capital budget, as a $800 million terminal expansion remains on hold and officials await a proposal from Delta Air Lines over repayment of commission-backed bonds issued for the former Northwest Airlines.

The commission several years ago negotiated a package that provided $240 million in financial relief for Northwest in exchange for its agreement to keep its hub and headquarters at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, maintain two maintenance hangars, and continue paying off a $275 million 1992 debt issue that matures in 2022.
