Murdock named to Transportation Conference Committee

Rep. Mark Murdock, R-Perham, has accepted an appointment to serve on a conference committee which will prepare a transportation finance omnibus bill to be presented to Gov. Mark Dayton.

Murdock is a member of the House Transportation Policy and Finance Committee. He is one of five House members who will meet with Senate counterparts to reconcile discrepancies between House and Senate versions of the bill.

"I was pleased with the bill when it passed the House and I am honored to continue working in the final stages so we can get it to the governor and start putting our budget in place," Murdock said. "I am sure we will be able to work out the differences for a responsible bill that upholds our infrastructure and levels the playing field by providing increased funding for greater Minnesota."
