You've heard it said that "we're all in the same boat."

You've also heard "politics makes strange bedfellows."

Somewhere in between these figures of speech lives the Fix The Pipes Coalition, a non-partisan statewide alliance asking for water infrastructure funding.

Not only may they get the $300 million in bonding Minnesota Governor Tim Walz is backing, the coalition has industry, environmental groups, the public sector, jobs and economic interests together in support of it.
