Last week we highlighted a win for ASCE in Wisconsin and brought up the possibility of success in Virginia.
Well, last Saturday, February 23, the Virginia General Assembly ended it’s annual session with passage of a sweeping transportation deal. On the last day of the session, the Senate gave its blessing to a plan that dramatically overhauls the way Virginians will pay for roads, highways and mass transit. As you know, the Virginia Section sent a letter to the Governor and legislative leaders encouraging them to finish the job and pass a transportation plan for the state before the session ends. ASCE also issued a Key Alert to members in Virginia urging them to contact state legislators.
