Senate passes Libous-sponsored bills to make roads safer, easier to travel

ALBANY – The New York State Senate passed two bills sponsored by Senator Tom Libous, R-Binghamton, this week that are designed to make the state’s roads and bridges safer and easier to travel.



“Our roads and bridges are the lifelines of New York State. We use them to get everywhere we need to go,” said Libous, who chairs the state’s transportation committee.

Libous’ bill, commonly known as the Bridge Reform Act, would fix the state’s Dedicated Highway and Bridge Trust Fund by creating a five-year phase out (approximately 20 percent per year) of more than $750 million in non-bridge and road expenses, including more than $200 million in DMV salaries, so that money can be used to fix roads and bridges.
