Just over 7 weeks left in the 84th legislative session and transportation continues to be a priority for lawmakers from all over the state.  If you missed yesterday morning’s live chat with Senator Robert Nichols and Rep. Joe Pickett, watch it here now.  Both leaders provided an excellent overview of top transportation issues so far this session.This morning the Senate Transportation Committee heard testimony for and against SB 1601 which would prevent High Speed Rail projects from exercising eminent domain authority.  Following testimony, it passed the committee in a 5-4 vote and has the potential to severely impair route implementation.  TAG will continue to oppose this and other legislation aimed at hindering high speed rail and we ask that you take less than 2 minutes to send a letter to your legislators urging them to also oppose this legislation.  If you are interested in learning more, feel free to attend an open house meeting.  The full meeting tour can be found here.  Our state cannot afford to lose high speed rail.

Tomorrow morning the House Transportation Committee convenes at 8 a.m. to review several bills.  TAG will formally support HB 373 (Simmons), HB 1370 (Phillips) and HJR 29 (Pickett) which all aim to dedicate funds from the motor vehicle sales tax.
