Transportation

OUR GOALS
Ensure Minnesota maintains a safe, reliable, multimodal transportation system that provides for the needs of employers and employees by delivering projects as efficient, cost-effective, and transparent as possible. This includes an efficient freight system that enhances Minnesota’s economic competitiveness in national and international markets. It also includes an aviation system – comprised of both commercial and general aviation – that provides Minnesota’s businesses and business travelers reliable, affordable and efficient access to markets across the country and around the globe.

OUR 2017 LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES FOR TRANSPORTATION
Pass a long-term funding bill that includes roads, bridges and transit and is financed by:

  • The general fund.
  • Efficiencies...at least 15%.
  • Bonding--trunk highway and general obligation.
  • Private-sector cost-sharing mechanisms.
  • Adjustments to license tab fees.
  • Metro funding sources for metro transit.

Bring Minnesota into conformity with REAL ID.
