The overwhelming majority of Minnesotans travel using roads and bridges and our funding priorities should reflect that reality.
I will continue to argue for:
- Fair distribution of transportation dollars throughout the state
- Investment in our roads without making them more expensive to use
- Directing resources to roads, highways, and bridges
Highways are Minnesota’s veins of commerce. Businesses use them to ship their goods, workers use them to get to and from their jobs. Without good roads, we risk losing businesses and all the jobs that go with them. Maintaining the quality and safety of our highways is crucial and will become increasingly more so as our renewable fuels industry expands.
