2012 Legislative Agenda
From Transit for Livable Communities
The 2012 Minnesota legislative sessions opens Tuesday, January 24, 2012. The big focal point from a transportation perspective will be the bonding bill. There are several important transitway infrastructure projects that need a financial contribution from the state to move forward. These transitway projects are important investments for the region’s economic competitiveness. The next state budget forecast, to be released in February, could change the focus of the session if it predicts a state budget deficit. The latest forecast, released in December, projected a surplus for this biennium (though not for future years).Given this starting point for the session, here is the TLC legislative agenda for the 2012 session.
