RELEASE: Statement from Majority Leader on Governor's Bonding Proposal

Friday, January 15, 2016

ST. PAUL, MN—House Majority Leader Joyce Peppin, R-Rogers, issued the following statement Friday regarding Governor Dayton's $1.4 billion bonding proposal.

"We are extremely disappointed that Governor Dayton failed to set aside even $1 for road and bridge infrastructure in Greater Minnesota or the suburbs," Peppin said. "Fixing our state's roads and bridges is a priority for Minnesotans in all parts of the state, and should be one of the first priorities in any bonding bill. Additionally, we have concerns about the hefty $1.4 billion price tag that includes wasteful projects like snowmaking machines in Saint Paul and ski lifts."
