Facts vs. Myths
 This is a transit bill…we need highway funding.  $1.2 billion (18 percent) for transit. $5.4 billion (82 percent) for roads and bridges. Didn’t the 2006 vote, which devoted all revenue from the Minnesota Vehicle Sales Tax (MVST) to transportation, cover our needs?  MVST only a portion of transit needs and MVST proceeds are lower than original projections due to decrease in revenues. Tired of gas taxes being used for transit?  Gas taxes are constitutionally dedicated to pay for roads and bridges. Doesn’t the wheelage tax pay for transit services?  The wheelage tax proceeds can only be used for highway and bridge purposes. 







The sales tax will only fund more light rail transit (LRT) “boondoggles.”  All transitways are eligible. Hiawatha LRT is one of the most successful transit corridors in the country. BRT most likely mode.
