The House Transportation and Tax Policy committees voted out a series of bills today that represent the first step in securing more road funding for our local communities. Each of the bills received bipartisan support, but the acknowledgement still remains that there is more work to be done.
This is the first real step taken by the legislature to come up with a solution to fix our infrastructure. Changes are still needed to these bill to ensure that they represent a comprehensive solution for the transportation needs of this state. The League continues to work with leadership, the sponsors, and other interest groups to improve these bills.
