Passenger Rail Funding Request sent to MN House and Senate Leaders

As a follow up to the All Aboard Minnesota Rally at the State Capitol in March, we have sent letters to the Minnesota House and Senate Leaders, asking them to fund the MnDOT State Rail Plan. We believe the House and the Senate are actively drafting their own respective Bonding Bills right now, and thus have put forth this request. We will actively monitor how these bills progress, which will likely go through the committee process and negotiation with the Governor.

We know that Rep Mary Murphy, drafting the House Bonding Bill, and the Governor, with his Bonding Bill proposal for $10M support more passenger rail, along with some Senators. We are hopeful money will be included in this environment for more passenger rail. Add your voice in support with your legislators and the House and Senate Leaders working on the bill: Rep Mary Murphy, Rep Melissa Hortman, Senator David Senjem, and Paul Gazelak. Stay tuned!
