Jim Knoblach believes we need increased funding for transportation. Minnesota did enact record transportation funding this last budget, but Jim believes we need to do more. He supported using part of the budget surplus to increase road and bridge construction. He also supports dedicating taxes like the sales tax on auto parts to roads and bridges, instead of enacting the 16 cent per gallon gas tax increase favored by some. Jim supports widening I-94 to three lanes up to Saint Cloud. He supports prioritizing more money for roads and bridges. He also authored an innovative expansion of the Northstar Corridor to Saint Cloud which would minimize cost by utilizing the current Amtrak station.
