PRESS RELEASE

RELEASE: Statement from Rep. Anna Wills on the release of the Road and Bridge Act of 2015


SAINT PAUL, MN—On Monday, House and Senate Republicans unveiled their comprehensive, future-oriented proposal for transportation in Minnesota: the Road and Bridge Act of 2015 (House File 4). The Republican plan invests $7 billion more over the next decade without raising taxes. The ten-year approach prioritizes road and bridge infrastructure through:

  • Immediate repair of roads in Minnesota communities.

  • Highway improvements for commuters and commerce.

  • Reliable, long-term funding without raising taxes.

Representative Anna Wills, R-Apple Valley, issued the following statement after the release of the plan:

"Our plan shows Minnesota that we can truly prioritize roads and bridges without a harmful tax increase that would take more money out of family budgets," Wills said. "The Road and Bridge Act of 2015 is the long-term solution our state needs that will fix or replace more than 15,500 lane miles of road, 330 bridges, and ensure Minnesota has safe, quality roads for Minnesotans to use for decades to come."
