Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton Backs American Jobs Act

Statement from Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton:

The President's vision should inspire Americans and galvanize Congress.  As he stated so eloquently, the time to act is NOW.  His American Jobs Act will put thousands of Minnesotans back to work; they need Congress to act NOW. As we learn more in the days ahead about the details of the President's plan, I am confident we will find even more initiatives that will help Minnesota's citizens, businesses, and economy.  I look forward to rolling up my sleeves to support the President's proposals and to put them to work for Minnesota."
