The League's sample resolution supports funding for all state transportation, but specifically requests dedicated state funding for city streets.
(Published Apr 15, 2019)
The League is urging city councils to adopt a resolution calling for the Legislature to pass and Gov. Tim Walz to sign a permanent increase in dedicated funding for state and local road, bridge, and transit systems in Greater Minnesota and the metropolitan area.
The League’s sample resolution supports funding for all parts of the state’s transportation system, but specifically requests an omnibus transportation funding bill that provides additional dedicated state funding for city streets, including funding that can be used for non-Municipal State Aid city street maintenance, construction, and reconstruction.
Given the importance of securing transportation funding in the 2019 legislative session, the League urges your city to pass this or a substantially similar resolution and to convey your support to your legislators.
Resolutions passed between now and the end of the regular legislative session (constitutional end date is May 20, 2019) will be particularly helpful to the League’s advocacy efforts on transportation funding.
