2019 PRIORITIES

A safe, reliable and efficient multimodal transportation system will help move movement of people and products and contribute to a vibrant economy. Minnesota continues to fall short of sustained and strategic funding for roads, bridges and transit. The Legislature should dedicate additional dollars from the general fund to complement long-term transportation funding.

  • Dedicate 100% of sales tax on auto parts to transportation.
  • Resolve long-term metro transit funding challenges.
  • Require hands-free use of cell phones while driving.
  • Prepare for connected and autonomous vehicles.
  • Establish permanent, long-term efficiency expectations at Minnesota Department of Transportation.
