Legislative Summary - 2015  

Transportation Funding-2015 
The 2015 Session was a huge disappointment for all of us working for a long-term transportation funding bill. The session ended with no action on a tax bill or long-term transportation plan, but with $1 billion of surplus left on the bottom line, Legislative leaders have said that they plan to pass both a tax bill and transportation bill during the 2016 Session.
