LRT Lobbying Effort Underway


[If we get'r rollin', maybe we can jump it!]

This just in from Minnesota 2020:

With less than a week remaining in this year's legislative session, time is running out for the Central Corridor light rail line. At stake is nearly half a billion dollars in federal funding for the project. Governor Pawlenty put that money in peril after flip-flopping and vetoing the required $70 million in borrowing.

Today, we're asking you whether legislators should try and get Pawlenty to change his mind again. Click here to vote in this week's quick poll and let us know.

Every weekday, Minnesota 2020 explores progressive ideas, analysis, and news. Visit us at www.mn2020.org daily for fresh ideas and commentary on education, health care, transportation, and economic development perspectives, for the issues that really matter.


Clearly, its crunch time for the Central Corridor. Everyone get out and push!
