Minnesota’s Infrastructure Union Urges State Leaders to Keep Moving Forward and Fixing Minnesota

Saint Paul, MN – Today, LIUNA Minnesota and North Dakota President and Business Manager Joel Smith issued the following statement in response to the state's projected surplus of $3.7 billion, including a general obligation bonding capacity of $980 million for local jobs and projects.

“We have a state surplus thanks to years of good fiscal management by the Walz Administration and the Legislature. Now is the time to act. We can't afford to sit idle as our infrastructure continues to deteriorate.

From upgrading outdated water and sewer systems to repairing crumbling roads and bridges, there's no shortage of critical projects that demand our attention. Fixing up and keeping up our infrastructure creates thousands of good-paying jobs and careers while ensuring the safety and well-being of our communities.

LIUNA Laborers are ready to put in the work. We need bipartisan action from state leaders to keep moving forward and fixing Minnesota.”
