Over the last two weeks a significant amount of progress has been made on the part of the legislature to come up with a full comprehensive solution to the transportation funding issue. What we need is at least $2 billion annually.
As is the case with many large legislative packages, you will hear, or have likely already heard, plenty of groups attacking or naysaying the details for a variety of reasons. This can sometimes make the process more difficult than it already has been.
Because of the holiday weekend, most legislators will be in their home districts, attending local events and Memorial Day parades. This is a great opportunity for you, as industry members and constituents, to walk up to them and say thank you for making the road funding issue a priority and for working so hard to find a solution. Tell them how much you appreciate their efforts and that you look forward to hearing about the final package very soon.
