Senator Tarr's Statement on Chapter 90 Funding

Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) released the following statement today regarding the proposed increase in Chapter 90 road and bridge funding for Massachusetts’ cities and towns:

“As the House and Senate embark on an important debate on how best to address the serious deficiencies in our state’s transportation infrastructure, nothing should impede or slow our progress in getting Chapter 90 money out to our cities and towns.  While we may disagree on the best approach for improving our transportation infrastructure, that should not stop us from moving quickly on the one issue for which there is universal agreement so that road and bridge funding is made readily available for cities and towns to capture the widest possible window of the construction season.”
