Gov. Tim Walz says he’s fed up with Senate Republicans’ blockade of his proposed 20-cent per gallon gas tax increase, so he’s taking the argument to their districts.
...the Democratic governor gazed into a giant pothole on Highway 47 in Anoka – a construction flagger held up traffic so he could do it – and said the real problem on that road was one of Minnesota’s most dangerous railroad crossings.
..."I am done trying to watch somebody jam an ideological peg into what is truly a practical situation that needs to be solved,” Walz said during a news conference in Anoka.
MN Gov: Timmy Walz
Well over a billion dollars, and then some, was allocated in 2018 for existing, ongoing and new road and transportation projects.

Listening to Rich, on camera or speaking publicly, was at least enjoyable because you didn't really have any idea what he was talking about or saying. That's because he didn't know either. And his slurring manner of speech and deer-in-the-headlights look is always entertaining. Walz? He whines like a little
MSN: Walz in love with gas tax increase.
