Osmek targets Light Rail funding

Sen. David Osmek has brought forward a pair of bills that would curb the use of public money on light rail transit projects without legislative approval.

Brian Bakst of Minnesota Public Radio:

“If we had had this law in place before we started all of the spending, we wouldn’t have problems today,” said Osmek.

One approved on a 6-4 vote by the Senate Local Government Committee would affect lines proposed for the Twin Cities area and around fast-growing Rochester.

The bills are SF150 and SF1769.
