HB 277

From the ABH:

House bill [277 would] levy a 1 percent sales tax statewide for specified transportation projects over 10 years

Status: House Transportation Committee passed, likely full House vote this week.

With a vote likely this week, please contact your state representative and ask for support of this bill. When you write or call, be sure to emphasize your support for a variety of transportation choices, such as commuter rail, bike and pedestrian facilities, and buses. This transportation tax should primarily fund the creation and maintenance of alternatives to road widening & construction.
