Mayor Barry Statement on Governor Haslam's Transportation Plan

Press release, 1/18/2017 - Mayor Megan Barry issued the following statement on news that Governor Bill Haslam will include authorizing legislation for voter referendums to approve a dedicated funding source for transit in his legislative package:

“I appreciate Governor Haslam’s leadership on the issue of transportation infrastructure in Tennessee and the inclusion of a local option for voters to approve dedicated transit funding in his legislative package. I believe Nashvillians are willing to pay for a mass transit system that meets the needs of our growing community if given the chance to make that decision. Over the coming weeks and months, we will continue to advocate on behalf of Governor Haslam’s comprehensive transportation legislation that will keep Nashville and Tennessee moving forward.”
