CONCORD - Today, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted to concur with the Senate recommendation of Ought to Pass as Amended on HB 1182, a transportation omnibus bill, 198-124. HB 1182 will next be enrolled with the Secretary of State’s office and then go to the governor’s desk, at which time he will have five days to act.
After the vote, Senate Transportation Chair David Watters (D-Dover) issued the following statement:
“Our transportation system will be essential to our economic growth and recovery in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The actions we have taken as a Legislature put people to work and create a more resilient and energy efficiency system that begins to develop a new economy. The 10-Year Highway Plan encompassed in this amendment both improves existing infrastructure and creates much needed job opportunities. A 21st century, multimodal transportation system is essential to economic growth and I urge the governor to sign HB 1182 into law.”
