Senator Liz Boldon on Senate Republican’s Vote to Block $1.5 billion in Public Works Funding for Statewide Infrastructure Needs

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – In Senate floor action on Thursday Senate Republicans voted down more than $1.5 billion in public funding for local infrastructure, public housing, higher education assets, and other projects throughout the state that would create good-paying union jobs in Rochester and every corner of Minnesota. “This is only the latest sign that Senate Republicans are unwilling to put the needs of people above politics,” said Senator Liz Boldon (DFL-Rochester).
