Progress In Motion Launches
“Fund Our Roads” Ad Campaign
Legislators shouldn’t let political gridlock block passage of a transportation funding bill again.
Progress In Motion has launched a statewide ad campaign to educate voters on the need for new road and bridge funding.
“With fifty percent of the state's roads and bridges more than 50 years old, and 1,000 of the state's bridges are structurally insufficient, the time is now for lawmakers to approve a long-term, dedicated source of funding to repair and expand Minnesota’s highways,” said Margaret Donahoe, Executive Director of the Minnesota Transportation Alliance.
Last year, political gridlock prevented lawmakers from enacting a sweeping transportation bill that would have paid for improvements to major commerce corridors, including sections of I-94 and Highways 14 and 23
“Legislators can’t let party politics get in the way of supporting new revenue for something that is so critical to Minnesota’s economy and the safety of the state’s drivers,” Donahoe said.
