Commissioner Peter McLaughlin


Hennepin County Commissioner McLaughlin to Address ACEC/MN Members - Nov 6, 2017

business.acecmn.org [cached]

Commissioner McLaughlin will discuss a variety of initiatives that county is pursing including:
Development along the light rail lines Long-term construction plans (3-5 years) Infrastructure Funding (including transportation, water, wastewater, energy, bonding) Workforce Development Challenges Cool County Initiatives Presenter : Commissioner Peter McLaughlin joined the Hennepin County Board in 1991. Peter has led the regional effort of labor, business and the community in successfully lobbying for light rail transit (LRT) This led to the opening of Minnesota's first light rail line, Hiawatha, now the METRO Blue Line in 2004. In 2008, he was instrumental in establishing a dedicated county funding source to expand the region's transit system of light rail, commuter rail and bus rapid transit lines. The Counties Transit Improvement Board, which Peter chaired, invested over $800m from a five-county ¼% sales tax for transit. Hennepin County this year adopted a ½% sales tax to finance further expansion of the transit system. Among other transportation-related accomplishments, he develop a comprehensive county bicycle plan and created a bicycle gap funding program to expand non-motorized transportation options for county residents and workers. In 2008, he secured $1 million in funding for infrastructure improvements to eliminate "gaps" in Hennepin's network of bicycling facilities as part of the county's 5-year capital improvement plan for 2008-2012. He has also an early advocate for the Target Field Station in downtown Minneapolis, which serves multiple light rail, bus, commuter rail line, as well as pedestrians and bicyclists. He supports additional funding for road and bridge projects through a county-wide wheelage tax. Prior to joining the County Board, McLaughlin served three terms in the Minnesota Legislature, rising to the post of Assistant House Majority Leader. He was the chief author on several key pieces of legislation, including the Parental Leave law, and legislation expanding the State Jobs Program (MEED), and State Dislocated Worker Program. Mr. McLaughlin received his bachelor's degree from Princeton University in 1971 and his Masters degree from the School of Public Affairs at the University of Minnesota in 1977.

In the breakup of a transit collaborative, good news for transit | Southwest Journal

Hennepin County will likely do just that to make up for the state's missing 10-percent contribution to the light-rail project, Hennepin County Board Chair Peter McLaughlin said.
A 14.5-mile extension of the METRO Green Line that currently runs between Minneapolis and St. Paul, the project would extend the tracks through the southwestern suburbs to Eden Prairie. "We've always had a way to finance Southwest; this is just a better way to finance Southwest," said McLaughlin, who also chairs CTIB. The goal is to notify the Department of Revenue in June so that taxes currently collected by CTIB can be rerouted to the counties by October, McLaughlin said. He said a more detailed timeline for the breakup would be developed after the current legislative session adjourns in St. Paul, where bills under consideration could have a significant impact on the resources available for transit projects. Instead, McLaughlin said, Hennepin County plans to borrow the $103.5 million and pay for it with the additional tax revenue it collects after CTIB ends. McLaughlin shared a similar sentiment. While "on its face, it looks like step backwards for regionalism," he said, the end of CTIB means more money for a transit system that is used in all of the member counties. "It's a plus for the region, because the regional transit system is going to have more money invested in it in the long run," he said.

Hennepin County's light rail tab grows | Southwest Journal

While it appears the funding burden has shifted significantly onto Hennepin County taxpayers, Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin (who also chairs CTIB) said the pie charts alone "don't tell the whole story."
"It misrepresents, I would argue, the incremental payment that Hennepin County taxpayers will be making, because they were going to be paying most of the CTIB contribution before," McLaughlin said. State law allowed CTIB to levy a quarter-cent sales tax and a $20 motor-vehicle sales tax in all five of its member counties. Sales in Hennepin County alone generated more than 55 percent of CTIB's tax revenue, McLaughlin noted. McLaughlin noted the breakup means none of the county's tax dollars will be used to pay for two east-metro transitways still in development: the Rush Line and Gateway corridors, both bus rapid transit projects. That means Hennepin County will pay 100 percent of operating costs not covered by fares on that segment of the line, estimated at about $30 million per year in the mid-2020s, McLaughlin said, adding that there was still time to negotiate a better deal before then. Browse Peter McLaughlin, Southwest Light Rail, SWLRT peacekimi Stop this project now it is insane. This rail doesn't serve the high density population areas of Minneapolis, the costs will continue to grow and it is not worth the negative environmental impacts to the Minneapolis chain of lakes. One needs to ask themselves why Peter will not let this project die?$?$ elarsson Or, in other words, McLaughlin is now admitting to the steep tax increase to Hennepin County taxpayers. Part in property tax and part in a regressive sales tax for the equity train. Hennepin County Commissioner Peter McLaughlin, center, chairing the Jan. 18 Counties Transit Improvement Board meeting.
