The committee assignments for the 2017-18 Minnesota House of Representatives were unveiled today. The Transportation Finance Committee, with we will be working closely during the upcoming legislative session, has 23 members, including five representatives from the U.S. Highway 14 corridor: Committee Chair Paul Torkelson (R-Hanska), Vice Chair John Petersburg (R-Waseca), Brian Daniels (R-Faribault), Clark Johnson (DFL-North Mankato) and Duane Sauke (D-Rochester). We look forward to working with this great group of representatives.
In other news, talks of a potential special session on taxes, bonding and health care fell through late last week amid disagreements between Gov. Dayton and House Speaker Kurt Daudt. The regularly scheduled session begins Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2017. The U.S. Highway 14 Partnership will be there to advocate for funding to FIX 14 NOW!
