MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Governor Tim Walz launched a statewide plan to rebuild infrastructure and create jobs in Minnesota on Thursday.
The governor’s first stop was the Duluth seawall and the dock on the shore of Lake Superior.
“Projects like these are what you have to do when it’s time to replace your roof or windows,” Walz told reporters. “Failure to do so is not financially responsible.”
Duluth Mayor Emily Larson said the infrastructure plan created jobs for local communities and helped revive the state’s economic engine.
