Thanks for your kind words Senator Senjem. Yourself and Senator Newman were “Rockstars” in helping me and putting up with my constant pressure.
This morning Governor Dayton signed our 2018 Public Infrastructure bill into law helping us deliver full funding for the long-delayed expansion of Highway 14. While I had the honor and privilege to put the bill together and take it to the Senate floor for its official vote I want to make sure that due credit goes to Sen. John Jasinski of Fairbault for his unceasing and untiring advocacy for Hwy 14 and to Senate Transportation Chair Scot Scott Newman for working to assemble the legal language that allowed me to put Hwy 14 into our bill with little threat of veto. They were truly the difference makers that made this project a reality after many years of coming close but never sealing the deal. It truly is a great day in Southern Minnesota transportation history.
