St. Paul- Following the passage of HF4, the Road and Bridge Act of 2015, Minnesota Jobs Coalition President Mark Drake issued the following statement.
“Rep. Paul Marquart and his liberal allies in the House today chose to vote against the interests of their districts, joining Minneapolis liberals in opposing a long-term transportation plan without raising taxes,” said Minnesota Jobs Coalition President Mark Drake. “It’s disappointing these Democrats chose to put partisan politics over investment directly into roads and bridges across Minnesota, including more than $1 million this biennium into Marquart’s district. Marquart’
s constituents and all Minnesotans deserve better.”
Joining Marquart in opposing legislation which would provide funding for roads and bridges in their districts were:
Rep. Melin whose district would receive more than $500,000 this biennium; Rep. Anzelc whose district would receive more than $600,000 in aid; Rep. Persell whose district would receive more than $600,000; and Rep. Metsa whose district would receive over $800,000.
