I talked with the Secretary of the Senate Local Government & Taxation Committee this morning and confirmed that Senate Bill 1044 will be up for hearing at the committee's meeting on Tuesday, February 17 at 3:00 p.m. in Room WW53 in the basement (Garden Level) of the capitol.
We encourage city officials to attend and testify if possible. Senate Bill 1044 is sponsored by Sen. Jim Guthrie, R-McCammon, and would prohibit local governments from condemning property for pedestrian and bicycle facilities, except associated with road projects. AIC opposes the legislation.
There's still time to get in a letter to the committee in opposition to SB 1044. See the previous AIC Blog Post for more information.
