2017 Legislative Session Summary  

2017 Legislative Session Summary

Transportation Bill, Bonding Bill Finally Passed!

After years of advocating and campaigninig for a long-term,comprehensive transportation funding bill, we finally have a bill passed that makes progress in addressing the $600M per year shortfall for roads and bridges in the state.

The Capital Bonding bill contains more money for transportation than we have seen previously. After many years of lobbying to have consistent funding at higher levels for the Local Road Improvement Program and Local Bridge program, this year’s bill provides almost $116 million for LRIP and $49 million for local bridges. The transportation bill contains another $25 million for local bridges for a total of $74 million for local bridges. The bonding bill also provides funding for two transitways.

Although it took an extra four-day special session to get their work done, legislators were able to work with the governor to pass a two-year budget and avoid a government shutdown. For transportation, we don’t have to worry about a special session occurring in June or July – they are done until February 20, 2018

Text Transportation to 52886 and be heard.  

Transportation affects every aspect of our lives.
Whether we are sending our children on the school bus, moving a farm product to market, or serving and protecting our communities as a first responder, transportation runs through every aspect of our state.

Lend your voice to the coalition and tell St. Paul to fully fund transportation.
