ACTION ALERT – Urge your legislators to pass a bonding bill!
As our communities and state continue to grapple with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that our lawmakers come together to pass a large bonding bill.
The bonding bill is one of the state’s most powerful tools to help stimulate the economy and ensure that our infrastructure remains sound. While there appears to be broad agreement among most legislators on the need for a bonding bill this year, differences remain regarding its size, scope and urgency.
We need your help! Please contact your legislators and urge them to pass a large bonding bill right away so that we can begin to get our economy back on track.
Contact your state senator and representative TODAY and urge them to pass a bonding bill.
Tell them that:
- A large bonding bill that invests at least $1.5 billion in critical infrastructure and helps create jobs is a key component in helping Minnesota bounce back from this crisis.
- The bonding bill must include significant funding for programs and projects that are important to Greater Minnesota including $20M for child care facility grants, $20M for Greater Minnesota Business Development Public Infrastructure (BDPI) grant program, and $2.5M to address the critical workforce housing shortage in Greater Minnesota.
- Tell your story! Share examples of how a bonding bill and investments in infrastructure will benefit your community, region and our state.
