Transportation Funding-2015 
The 2015 Session was a huge disappointment for all of us working for a long-term transportation funding bill. The session ended with no action on a tax bill or long-term transportation plan, but with $1 billion of surplus left on the bottom line, Legislative leaders have said that they plan to pass both a tax bill and transportation bill during the 2016 Session.

Photo Recap Transportation Day at the Capitol - 2015  

Thank You! to everyone who participated in the Alliance Transportation Day at the Capitol.

We heard from Governor Mark Dayton about his plan for increasing funding for transportation and how important transportation infrastructure is for the state.

Our participants also heard from House Transportation Committee Chair Tim Kelly (R-Red Wing) about the importance of funding for roads and bridges to the new House majority and his interest in finding a solution to transportation funding challenges we face.

2015 will be a critical year for transportation both in St. Paul and in Washington, D.C.  The Transportation Alliance will be leading the effort to secure additional funding.
