Sen. Bakk responds to Gov. Dayton’s State of the State Address

Bakk Portrait

“Minnesotans, our communities, and our businesses are depending on the legislature to pass a comprehensive transportation package this year. To keep up with the speed of the modern economy we must improve and invest in our roads, bridges and transit options. The Governor is right, the consequences of inaction this year are too great to be ignored. We will continue to pursue dedicated revenue for transportation so our state and local infrastructure is not forced to compete each year with nursing homes, schools, and higher education. Our focus in the final weeks of the legislative session will be to continue crafting a budget that keeps Minnesota moving forward by investing in many of the priorities shared by all Minnesotans.”
