The bipartisan infrastructure plan that has passed and is being put into actual dollars for Minnesota and our nation will be an incredible boost for our economy and jobs.
Minnesota is set to receive $4.5 billion for federal-aid highways, $302 million for bridge replacement and repairs, $820 million for public transportation repairs, $100 million for broadband expansion and $68 million to expand electric vehicle charging stations across the state.
This is a synopsis of what Minnesotans can expect, it does not include all of the benefits to our state and to our nation.
It's important to know that ALL of Minnesota's Republican congressional representatives voted against the infrastructure bill and they have no plan of their own in its place.
