Representative Peter Durant Appears on the FOX-25 Morning News

In case you missed it, Representative Peter Durant (R-Spencer) made an appearance on the FOX-25 Morning News to discuss the House Republican Caucus’ transportation finance proposal.

Yesterday, House Republicans unveiled an alternative transportation finance plan – free from any statewide tax increases. Unlike proposals offered by the Governor and Democratic leadership which rely heavily on tax revenue, the Republican Caucus’ plan will dedicate a portion of new tax revenue growth to be allocated to transportation needs. Additionally, the comprehensive transportation finance package will, in part, repeal both the Pacheco Law and eliminate pricey Project Labor Agreements. In doing so, the Commonwealth is poised to save millions of dollars each year – money which stands to fund transportation and infrastructure projects around Massachusetts.
