Help CTAI Pass Legislation

14-Mar-2012

This year the Community Transportation Association of Idaho (CTAI) is working to put through a piece of legislation (Senate Bill 1310) at the Idaho Statehouse that will combine two separate committees into one committee called the “Idaho Mobility Council”.
Combining these committees will:

  • Increase efficiencies of the two committees and,
  • Increase the transparency and accountability of public transportation funding decisions in Idaho.

So far this legislation has received bipartisan support in the Senate and recently passed with a 34-0 vote, and we are working to get this legislation passed in the Idaho House. However, the legislation is being held in committee and is not set to get on an agenda killing the bill for this session.

We are asking you stand with us and say this legislation deserves a committee hearing!

ACT NOW!To help you can call or e-mail Transportation and Defense Chairman, Representative Joe Palmer (Meridian), and House Majority Leader Mike Moyle asking them to give the Idaho Mobility Council bill (S1310) a hearing! Rep. Palmer can be reached at 208-332-1146 or jpalmer@house.idaho.gov and Rep. Moyle can be reached at 208-332-1120 mmoyle@house.idaho.gov

The Community Transportation Association of Idaho (CTAI) is working to put through a piece of     legislation (Senate Bill 1310) at the Idaho Statehouse that will combine two separate committees into one committee called the “Idaho Mobility Council”.

I understand that by combining these committees we can make a positive statewide impact as this will:

  • Increase efficiencies of the two committees and,
  • Increase the transparency and accountability of public transportation funding decisions in  Idaho.

This legislation received full, bipartisan support in the Senate as it recently passed with a 34-0 vote. As a taxpayer and citizen of Idaho, I support legislation that improves how my tax dollars are  used. Please allow Senate Bill 1310 to be heard by the House Transportation & Defense committee.

Feel free to call CTAI with any questions at 208-344-2354.

Sincerely,
 The Community Transportation Association of Idaho
