Transportation Funding in MN

On Feb. 10, CTS Research Seminars hosted my presentation titled “Transportation Funding in Minnesota: Past, Present, and Prospect.” You may click here to download the PowerPoint file (in PDF), or here to watch Webinar Recording.

Abstract from the CTS Research Seminar flyer:

In recent years, depleting state and local budgets and growing capital and maintenance costs related to transportation have been a common challenge. The state of Minnesota is estimated to have billions in unmet transportation needs to keep up with inflation and the increase in transportation demands. In 2008, the state legislature passed chapter 152 (HF2800), which made some important changes to existing funding techniques.

This presentation will review the funding of public surface transportation systems (including highways, transit, and local roads) in Minnesota. It will discuss how transportation projects have been funded, identify current and future policy issues likely to affect transportation funding, look at the implications of chapter 152 (HF2800), and go over some of the funding options suggested by other researchers. The presentation will summarize a report that aims to encourage better understanding and management of issues related to transportation funding in Minnesota.


When someone unfollows you, qwitter sends you an email message saying who unfollowed you and what tweet did you submit before they unfollowed you. All you need to do is, sign up. Enter your twitter username and email address.TwitDiff provides e-mail and RSS notification for accounts unsubscribing from your tweets.TwittaQuitta is by far the ideal. I used almost all of them. Qwitter, Goodbybuddy, unfollowr and TwittaQuitta. Twitta Quitta sends you an email once every day only when someone unfollowed you.

definitely creative listing of well designed logos.

I just added this website to my google reader, great stuff. Can not get enough!

Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It's on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Wonderful choice of colors!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Bless you!

Mitt Romney's campaign is so dead, Republicans refer to him as "Reaganesque."

When she was a small girl, Amanda hid a ticking clock in an old, rotten tree trunk. It drove woodpeckers crazy. Ignoring tasty bugs all around them, they just about beat their brains out trying to get at the clock. Years later, Amanda used the woodpecker experiment as a model for understanding capitalism, Communism, Christianity, and all other systems that traffic in future rewards rather than in present realities.

Sure the red car considered one of the first textbooks I read through as a kid an 69 now built me a car nut.

What were being the mini ute derivatives utilized for? The roamer and nomad appear to be much more trouble than they're worth. That is you may just buy a Mini or a Mini metro and beat them up as opposed to make a total new cut down entire body for them.
