begin consideration of HB 487, by Rep. Bill Poole, R-Tuscaloosa. HB 487 is
legislation that will provide much-needed additional funding to enhance and

increasing the state gasoline and diesel fuel tax.
Our crumbling infrastructure is an issue that affects all 67
counties and every single city in the state. Contact your legislator
today and let them know that now is the time to address infrastructure in
Alabama which will enhance economic development and public safety. Our
legislators cannot continue to ignore Alabama’s crumbling infrastructure.
Counties and cities will receive funding from a $1.2 billion
bond issue for improving and replacing roads and bridges with emphasis on
safety, bridges replacement, and the enhancement of the state’s neglected
Farm-to-Market Road System. The state Department of Transportation will receive
funding from a $1.2 billion bond issue for state-maintained highways and
bridges to enhance safety, improve congestion and connectivity, and increase
Alabama’s economic competitiveness.
