Rep. Green Issues Statement Following Release of GOP Transportation Plan
 
St. Paul, MN- On Monday, House and Senate Republicans unveiled their comprehensive, future-oriented proposal for transportation improvements. The plan invests $7 billion 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 Steve Green (R-Fosston) issued the following statement after the release of the plan:

“Our plan is a long term solution to repairing our state’s crumbling roads and bridges,” said Green. “Raising taxes should not be the default solution to our state’s transportation needs. That is why I am encouraged that our plan will invest $7 billion to repair or replace 15,500 lane miles and 330 bridges without raising taxes.”
