FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 08/07/2013
Capitol Update 9
The Third Special Session of the 83rd Legislature has finally adjourned. The major legislation passed during this special session was House Bill 1 (H.B.1)-concerning transportation funding.
As you know, our state has grown exponentially in population through economic expansion, and we must have transportation infrastructure to support this growth. I believe that transportation infrastructure investment must be implemented with no toll roads, no new taxes, and no additional debt, because of this, I am pleased with H.B. 1 This important legislation is a step toward giving Texas the best road system in the Nation.
Now that the Legislature stands adjourned “sine die” - Latin for “without fixing a day for future action or meeting” - I am happy to return home to my family and to the people of District 70.

For God and Texas,
Scott Sanford, HD 70
