Colorado: Transportation Bill Introduced

The Fix Colorado Roads Act (SB-210) was introduced late last week and will face its first committee hearing on Thursday. The bill is the Northern Colorado Legislative Alliance’s latest effort to secure funding for transportation. It would deliver $3.5 billion in important transportation projects throughout the state by restoring stable general fund funding to transportation and authorizing a bonding program. If the bill passes the General Assembly and is signed by the governor, it would then require voter approval. The proposal comes after months of discussion with leaders, between leaders and among coalition partners, and the finalization of the FY 16-17 budget to set the pace of funding for transportation.
