New Stillwater Bridge Has Roadblocks in Senate Budget

After Assembly Democrats removed a provision to limit build options on a new Stillwater Bridge, Senate Democrats added a slightly revised version back into their budget bill. I offered an amendment to repeal this “bridge”-blocking provision, but it was turned back by the majority party. Now our efforts will focus on working to remove the provision in conference committee where differences between the Assembly and Senate budget bills will be addressed.
