From Stephen Clements of Caffeinated Conservatives:
If you are against the AMP like I am, here is a way the TN House can kill the stupid idea to tear 3 lanes out of the middle of West End!
Wednesday March 05, 2014 at 1:30 PM, the State House Transportation Sub-Committee will consider Amendment Number 1 to House Bill number 2156, which will forbid any bus from loading or unloading passengers at any place on the road way except at the curb. This amendment will kill the stupid waiting platform the AMP would put in the middle of West End, and so break the AMP's design. If you want to save us from the AMP, please call or email the people at the link below and ask that they support Amendment 1 and HB2156! This could stop the AMP!
Good Afternoon to All StopAMP.org Supporters!|
Our organization is very very busy trying to put a STOP TO THE AMP BUS PROJECT at the State Level.
Tomorrow afternoon, Wednesday March 05, 2014 at 1:30 PM in Room 30 of the Legislative Plaza, the Tennessee State House of Representative'sTransportation Sub-Committee will be taking up an amendment to a House bill which would prevent any public transportation vehicle to load or unload passengers at any place on the road way except at the curb. This amendment and bill would not let the AMP bus project go forward as designed.
It is important for you to email and\or call the Tennessee State House of Representatives Transportation Sub-committee members listed below to ask them to support Amendment Number 1 to House Bill number 2156 and to support and vote for the House bill as amended. This is about the safety of the citizens by not making them cross lanes of traffic to board a bus.
Please ask your representative to VOTE FOR AMENDMENT NUMBER 1 TO HOUSE BILL NUMBER 2156 TOMORROW AFTERNOON AT 1:30 PM.
Thank You for all you do to STOP THE AMP!
Rick Williams, Chairman of the Board, StopAMP.org, Inc.
