House Passes Road Bond Bill

The House of Delegates met this afternoon to convene for a third Extraordinary session of the 2017 Legislature.

It would be matched by federal dollars, decreasing amounts each year. The first year would release $800 million to go towards road and highway maintenance. Definitions in the bill clarify that the money can only be used for state road employees and/or state road projects.

The bonds would benefit all 55 counties, according to Delegate Eric Nelson.

UPDATE:

The House passed SB 3001 with no amendments.

The House is in recess until 5:30 p.m.
