Those pushing for an increase in Minnesota’s gasoline tax were again not successful during the just-ended legislative session, and one chief advocate, Democratic Representative Frank Hornstein from Minneapolis says:

“I think a comprehensive approach that we’re taking at this point, yes, may require electoral change.”

“We cannot continue to just limp along with a second-rate transportation system in this state.”

Democrats will try to hold their majority in the Minnesota House plus take control of the state Senate. It will likely be a hard-fought battle because President Trump will likely be running for re-election.
