After to failing to pass the Southwest Light Rail project in the

House or Senate, Governor Dayton is now trying to go around the


legislature and fund it using the same questionable process used
to build the $90 million Senate office building. Meanwhile,
Minnesotans will not benefit from the $550 million tax relief bill
and $700 million in funding for roads and bridges. Thats no way
to run a railroad.
Todays hastily called meeting on Southwest Light Rail is not a
substitute for legislative hearings that include public testimony,
questions and ultimately votes by legislators. Before the
legislature supports any $2 billion public works project there
needs to be a rigorous hearing process, and thats exactly what
will happen next year when Republicans are in the majority in the
Senate.
