Investing in Local Jobs and Projects
In 2020, Governor Walz signed the biggest jobs and projects bill in state history. Now in 2022, Governor Walz and Lieutenant Governor Flanagan are building on that success by investing in more local jobs and projects across the state. Whether it’s expanding access to safe and affordable housing, building safer roads and bridges, or upgrading higher education facilities, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor know the importance of investing in infrastructure and taking care of the property taxpayers already own.
