New bill would generate transportation funds

Email

A new transportation funding bill introduced at the Minnesota Legislature this year would change the way the Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB) is governed.

CTIB is a regional coalition that funds transit projects in the metropolitan area through a dedicated quarter-percent sales tax.

The new bill would increase the sales tax to 1 percent in participating counties including Washington, and require Carver and Scott counties to chip into the pool of funds.
