Gov. Tim Walz traveled to a hazardous railroad crossing in Anoka on Tuesday to push for his transportation package, which includes a 20-cent-a-gallon increase in the gas tax to fix and improve Minnesota roads and bridges.

"The issue for Anoka is this one, but every single community has one, and we're in it together," said Walz, surrounded by Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan and local government officials. Also present was Margaret Anderson Kelliher, commissioner of the Department of Transportation and the last speaker of the Minnesota House to get a gas tax increase passed into law.
