Local 49 Business Manager Jason George, along with our partners in the industry, spent yesterday advocating for increased funding to road and bridge programs. The bill considered would dedicate 100% of the state’s auto parts sales tax to improving our roads and bridges. Coalition efforts paid off with an 11-0 unanimous vote in the Senate Transportation Finance and Policy Committee. The bill was sent to the Senate Tax Committee. Thank you to Senator Newman for authoring the bill, members of both parties that supported the initiative, and all the members of Local 49 that attended the committee hearing in a snowstorm to advocate for investments in our state’s infrastructure!
