New bill would generate transportation funds
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.
