Senator John Hoffman Celebrates More Than $170 Million in Capital Investment and Infrastructure Funding

SAINT PAUL, Minn. — Earlier this month, Governor Tim Walz signed a $2.6 billion capital investment package and a $1 billion transportation budget to fund construction, renovation, and redevelopment projects. Senator John Hoffman (DFL-Champlin), who authored or co-authored bills that combined for more than $170 million, welcomed the bills being signed into law as a major victory for his district and the state.

“This bipartisan bill is a great investment in Minnesota after years of inaction,” said Senator Hoffman. “Projects funded in this legislation will create good-paying jobs and improve the quality of life for residents in the northern suburbs, the Twin Cities, and all parts of the state.
