Governor Dayton and legislative leaders should agree on an agenda for a Special Session of the legislature that includes transportation funding, a capitol bonding bill and the omnibus tax bill. Failure to pass the major bills of the session is unacceptable. The legislature has had two full sessions to pass a comprehensive transportation funding bill and all of the options are on the table. It's time for action. Urge the governor and your legislators to work together and pass important infrastructure funding during a Special Session this summer.
Progress In Motion advocates for all modes of transportation all across the State of Minnesota. Our goal is the development of a safe and effective transportation system. We advocate for transportation infrastructure and services in Greater Minnesota as well as the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area and for highways and bridges, transit, ports and waterways and other modes. Our coalition is the largest and most diverse transportation organization that includes businesses, labor, local governments and advocates who rely on the transportation system to ship products, get to work, school and other important destinations and live their lives independently.
Progress In Motion reached out to hundreds of thousands of Minnesotans in 2016 and kept Transportation Funding a top priority. 2016 Campaign Summary
