Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation repeals Resolve 2011, c. 147, which required the Department of Transportation to oversee and facilitate an independent study of the feasibility of a privately-funded, privately-operated and publicly-accessible east-west highway.  It would create Highway Fund and Federal Expenditures Fund savings since the department will no longer be using the $300,000 of planning studies funding it has on hand to complete this study.
