Time to talk transportation: Statewide group, local leaders call on action from lawmakers on transportation funding
BEMIDJI—At the end of the 2015 Minnesota legislative session, the fact no long-term solution for transportation funding was achieved was top of mind for many lawmakers and local civic leaders.
What's changed with a March 8 start for the 2016 session?
The group Transportation Forward is touring the state urging those lawmakers to find a workable solution to increasing funding for all transportation infrastructure, including roads and bridges, but also for transit systems and biking and walking paths. The tour stopped in Bemidji on Thursday evening.
