ST. PAUL, MN – Governor Mark Dayton today introduced a Jobs Bill that would invest $1.4 billion in infrastructure projects statewide, creating an estimated 39,900 Minnesota jobs*. This new Jobs Bill would help address many of the state’s critical infrastructure needs, including essential water infrastructure, while strengthening Minnesota’s economy and putting thousands of people to work.
“My proposals would put thousands of Minnesotans to work throughout our state,” said Governor Dayton. “This bill will help deliver clean, affordable water to Minnesota communities, and prioritizes projects that have been delayed for many years. These projects are essential to improving our state’s infrastructure. I ask the Legislature to join me in working to pass a capital investment bill this session that will support our local economies and create jobs.”
