                     TOM EMMER FOR US
                           HE’S WRONG
                                 T  om Emmer is one of those politicians who causes problems and then refuses to
                                    take responsibility. He voted against fixing our bridges and when the I-35 bridge
                               collapsed, he opposed compensating the people who got hurt.

                          1. Voted Against Funds that May Have Prevented Bridge Collapse
                              Emmer voted three times against funds that would have repaired broken infrastructure across
                              Minnesota, including the I-35 bridge. He even voted against the final attempt to rebuild
                              infrastructure before the bridge collapsed. [HF 946, Journal Page 2016, 3/24/07, Journal Page 6640, 5/14/07, Journal
                              Page 7571, 5/21/07]

                          2. Opposed Bill to Compensate Bridge Collapse Victims
                              Emmer was one of only ten representatives that voted against efforts to compensate victims of
                              the bridge collapse. [Minneapolis Star Tribune, 2/29/08; HF 2553, Journal Page 11270, 5/5/08]

                          3. Voted Against Infrastructure Improvements After Bridge Collapsed
                              Emmer opposed a $6.6 billion plan to rebuild roads, bridges, and transit throughout Minnesota
                              even after the I-35 bridge collapse. [HF 2800, Journal Page 7883, 2/21/08]
