Dear local lawmakers,
Minnesota families and businesses are struggling to make ends meet during this
period of fragile economic recovery. Excessive government growth, higher
spending and more taxes are not the answer to growing our economy and
putting our state back on track. Building a new expensive and unnecessary light
rail line in the southwestern suburbs will do little to relieve traffic congestion and
result in higher taxes.
Rather than raise over $1 billion in new taxpayer dollars for this project, don’t
spend money we don’t have on a train we don’t need.
