Transportation Bill On The Move

A massive new transportation funding bill is on the move in the state Senate. With a vote of 13 - 1, the Senate transportation committee advanced a funding package that will generate $2.5-billion dollars a year, when fully implemented.The money would come from uncapping the Oil Company Franchise Tax, hiking drivers' fees and imposing a new surcharge on traffic law violators. About $700-million dollars separates this plan from the governor's plan; negotiations are pending.
