Transportation Funding Eyed for Special Session

Transportation Funding Eyed for Special Session

While much of the industry was disappointed that the transportation funding legislation sponsored by the Alabama Road Builders did not receive final passage during the 2016 legislative session, there is renewed excitement based on the governor’s call for items that can be discussed during the special session.

While the lottery is certainly going to be front and center and must be passed by August 24, there is time for items listed on the call to surface. ABC of Alabama’s Board of Directors and staff will be working closely with Alabama Road Builders coalition to stay informed on what is needed to be done regarding this legislation.

Also, as a reminder, ABC of Alabama’s Legislative Chairman Mark Mattox and ABC staff are currently accepting items to be included on the legislative ballot that is slated to go out in September. If you would like to discuss potential legislation that could impact our industry and our economic development in the state, please reach out to Jay at jay@abc-alabama.org.
