Renae Berg (DFL) QUESTION #1 The word is the state roads and bridges are lagging in repairs, maintenance and that money for any new construction improvements is hard to come by. (ie: Highway 8) Do you have any preference for a method to increase available funding, or do you feel there’s sufficient money and what’s needed is re-directing existing funds? Opinions on where these redirected monies could come from would be helpful. Road maintenance is very important. Our commerce depends on transportation and transportation depends on fully functioning roads and bridges. Infrastructure is vital to keep large and small business up and running. Our state will have to recover from the cost of this pandemic then budgeting will need to be done to take care of this vital issue.
QUESTION #2 How would you describe your level of support for efforts aimed at reducing production of greenhouse gas in Minnesota? Science tells us that climate change is real. We in Minnesota take pride in our Environment and I will support legislation to continue to decrease pollution. I am proud of the action taken to protect workers in factories and the neighbors of factories. The pristine waterways in Minnesota must be preserved to keep us known for our beauty.
QUESTION #3 Any ideas to jump start the state economy in the wake of what will hopefully be a diminishing virus situation when you take office in 2021? Our state government is moving forward in efforts to jump start the economy with investing in Border-to-border Broadband to expand high-speed service. Plus a Telemedicine Equipment Reimbursement Grant Program to help with Covid-19 health care services. I will support efforts such as mentioned one by one to help business recover and start our states economy upward.
