Not happy about MnDOT no show at state fair

The Minnesota Senate's top transportation lawmaker is upset with the Minnesota Department of Transportation's decision not to take part in the Minnesota State Fair for the first time in 27 years.

"The 'Great Minnesota Get Together' is an opportunity for people from all over the state to receive highway maps, along with up-to-date information on road conditions and construction projects," Sen. Steve Murphy, DFL-Red Wing, said.

MnDOT officials say they are not going to the fair due to budget concerns.
