My new state senator, John Miller (D-1SD), saw his bill to kill the HRTA die in committee. He had modified his own bill to end the unelected, unaccountable, unseparated powers Regional Government to exclude only The Peninsula. Still, it went down 10-4.Now, the only chance to kill the HRTA this session is the bill my delegate, Tom Gear (R-91HD), submitted.Check out his site for the list of committee members to contact.
HB 829 redlines, repeals, the HRTA and its projects which don't solve the transportation congestion here from the monster HB3202. The rest of HB3202 stands for the rest of the Commonwealth to suffer.The People of Tidewater still stand against this wrong plan, expansion of unnecessary government, and wrong taxes over 2:1.Yet, the bill isn't even on the docket in the House Transportation Committee.
