Senator Robert Nichols' statement on failure to address SJR 2

"I am disappointed that the Senate failed to address a number of important issues last night. As chairman of Senate Transportation, I find it particularly unfortunate that SJR 2 did not pass. Congestion on our state highways is increasing daily and the system is in need of maintenance. This measure would have been a step in the right direction toward finding a long-term transportation funding solution, and had strong, bipartisan support in both chambers of the legislature. I look forward to continuing to work diligently on the matter."
