From our friends at All Aboard Minnesota:
The Twin Cities to Duluth service, called Northern Lights Express (NLX) is ready to roll. It’s a project that’s called “shovel ready.” All that is needed are state matching funds for a federal grant to complete construction costs.
But We Need Your Help to Make This Happen!
The Minnesota House has funded NLX in their Transportation bill, and the Governor’s office supports this service.
Unfortunately, the Senate recently passed a budget amendment to block funding for NLX.
WE can change that by making sure NLX funding makes it through the conference committee that will reconcile the differences between the House and Senate Transportation bills. Lawmakers will make critical funding decisions about NLX, soon.
It’s very important that your state representatives hear support for NLX this week!
Using the links to the right, please call, tweet, or email your Minnesota House Representative & Senator this week and express your support for NLX.
