Hello all,

Please find the latest transportation bill matrix attached. As the Legislature nears the completion of its committee work, the focus will turn more and more to the budget. February revenue collections were reported earlier today and continue to indicate that the Legislature will have a very sizable balance to work with when setting next year's budget. Collections were actually down when compared to February from a year ago but that was attributed to technical timing issues and the numbers were still $198 million above what was forecasted. Efforts continue to direct as much of that balance to transportation infrastructure as possible and chip away at the accumulated decades of under-investment.
