Dear Neighbors,

I hope this finds you well. I’m writing to remind you of the upcoming opportunity to connect on Zoom at our virtual coffee hour on this Saturday, November 20 at 9:00 a.m. Please RSVP with my legislative assistant, Isabel, at Isabel.Anderson@house.mn to receive the Zoom information.

I hope to see you online and hear what’s on your mind.

 

It was an honor to welcome the House Capital Investment Committee to Apple Valley last week.

I was glad committee members could hear directly from the Minnesota Zoo about their vision to enhance accessibility for guests and increase health facilities for the animals. You can click here to read more about what the Zoo’s plans are. I'm advocating for a robust infrastructure bill in Minnesota so we can continue to enjoy regional assets like the Zoo now and in future years to come.

Federally, Minnesota received good news on Monday with the President’s signature of the infrastructure law. Our state stands to gain:

  • $4.5 billion for highways
  • $302 million for bridges
  • $100 million for broadband internet
  • $68 million for electric vehicle charging stations
  • $818 million for public transportation
  • $680 million for clean water

MinnPost has provided excellent coverage on how Minnesotans will benefit, including bipartisan praise regarding the investments we’ll get to make in our state’s infrastructure. If you’re interested, you can read the article here.

 

Keep in Touch

I hope to see you on Saturday! Even if you can’t make it, don’t hesitate to reach out anytime to share your input, questions, or to let me know how I can provide assistance.

It’s an honor to serve our Apple Valley and Lakeville residents and families at the State Capitol.

Have a great week.

Sincerely,

Robert Bierman

State Representative
