The Hennepin County Board of Commissioners voted Thursday to increase the county's funding commitment to the Southwest Light Rail project.
The vote was held during a special meeting, where commissioners first voted as the county board, then as the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority board.
The vote passed 5 to 2.
The vote increased the county's funding commitment to $190 million and the railroad authority's funding commitment to $14 million.
Later this summer, the board is expected to vote to extend funding into 2019.
