House Minority Leader’s Statement on Senate Republicans’ Transportation Finance Bill
“I commend Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr and the Senate Republican Caucus for proposing innovative and creative solutions aimed at addressing the Commonwealth’s transportation finance dilemma – without raising any taxes, fees, or fares.
In their comprehensive proposal, the Senate Republicans delineated a number of targeted proposals that deserve serious dialogue and discussion. By approaching increased revenue without burdening the taxpayers, Senator Tarr and his caucus have illustrated that broad-based tax increases don’t have to be a forgone conclusion.
I look forward to the Senate conducting a lively, fact-based debate on the Senate Republican Caucus’ alternative plan.”
