For weeks now, a bill that would allocate existing dollars to fixing our state’s broken and crumbling roads and bridges has languished on the Senate calendar. In the news, our elected officials and the Governor all claim that roads are a priority, yet the refuse to bring it up for debate!
We are heading into the sumer driving season, a typically dangerous time of year for driving, and Senators are about to wrap up the legislative session having ignored the issue for another year!
That affects our economy, it affects how much you pay to maintain your vehicle, but most importantly it puts our families at risk!
There is ONE week left, so make your voice be heard.

They need to hear that you are fed up with: – A third of state roads being in poor condition or worse. – 1 out of every 5 bridges being dangerously substandard. – Spending an $255 per year in extra vehicle maintenance because of poor roads. – Roads playing a role in 1 out of 3 fatal accidents in 2013
