I am writing today to ask for your support of House Bill 170, the Transportation Funding Act of 2015. Addressing our transportation and infrastructure needs is a difficult challenge, but one that must be solved if we are going to remain the best state in the nation for business. This legislation will help to fund the modernization and maintenance of our road and bridge network which is vital to the success of our prosperous state.
