Governor’s statement on rail funding bill

Posted on Aug 24, 2017 in Featured, Latest News, Newsroom, Press Releases

I’m elated that legislators have come to an agreement that will move the rail project forward. I’m particularly pleased that the state will have increased oversight for this project, and I’ve discussed the importance of accountability with the new HART Executive Director Andy Robbins.

I look forward to hearing the public’s input during next week’s special session. I firmly believe transit is a strategic asset for our communities that will enable us to provide affordable homes for our families while preserving open space outside the urban center. –Governor David Y. Ige
