Lee County Commission & Lee MPO send letters to Congress on federal transportation bills

At Tuesday's County Commission meeting, the Board approved Chairman Manning's motion to send a letter to Congressman Connie Mack in opposition to HR 7, the House transportation bill, specifically objecting to the transit provisions.  Click here to read the letter

They also sent letters to both Senators Nelson and Rubio urging them to support the Cardin-Cochran amendment to the Senate transportation bill.  This amendment would give local governments an opportunity to make our streets safer in Florida and Lee County.  Click here to read the letter.

At Friday's MPO meeting, the MPO Board also approved sending the same letters to the Congressional delegation.

Thank you, BoCC and MPO for making your voices heard on this important legislation!
