WASHINGTON (LEARFIELD)  —   The Democratic-controlled U-S House passed an infrastructure package aimed at improving infrastructure, roads and bridges and creating millions of jobs.

But Minnesota Congressman Collin Peterson voted against the Moving Forward Act Wednesday.

Peterson complains that it was bogged down by unrelated spending we cannot afford.

The Seventh District Democrat said he’s “disappointed partisan politics and a one-sided process have stalled out a desperately needed infrastructure package.”

He says he’s hopeful Senate negotiations will yield a more balanced approach.
