I have a navigation bar that appears site-wide at the top, and links to important internal pages.

I'd like to repeat this navigation bar on the bottom, again, site-wide.

Is there any problem, Google-wise, with duplicating links this way, e.g. with having 2 links to the same page?

Most sites I work with do something like this as a user convenience and there is no problem for them.

Just make sure that you keep the links to less than 100 on a page. Not just for google, msn and yahoo like that as well.

Have the navigation both at the top and at the bottom if you want. It generally isn't a problem.

My site just got sandboxed and nothing shows in serps but home page. I think it was our new template where we created a page for every city in the US. Then we linked to every city in a state from each city page and the state page.

CA, TX and FL have a huge huge number of cities so this created a huge number of links. New template went live in April and was getting indexed nicely. Then sandbox.

I think the huge number of links in every city in each state from every city page must have tripped a penalty.

I am desparately trying to regenetate all pages leaving off the links but just have one city links page.

FYI be careful.
