We are very pleased to report that Senate Bill SB2096 and House Bill HB3110 (HD1892) have has been “reported out” favorably by the state’s Joint Committee on Transportation. These bills were filed by the Train Campaign with the help of State Senator Adam Hinds and State Rep Smitty Pignatelli. They now move on to the next stage of review and discussion.
