Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro today offered thanks to Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, Speaker of the House of Delegates Michael Busch and Senate President Mike Miller for proposing legislation that could lead to increased funding for transportation projects around the state. Montgomery County has been seeking funding for projects including the Purple Line, the Corridor Cities Transitway and a Bus Rapid Transit system.

The complete text of Council President Navarro’s statement:

Thank you to Governor O’Malley, Speaker Busch and Senate President Miller for proposing a serious transportation solution. Maryland’s economic future rests on our ability to fund our state’s transportation priorities. The proposal to lower and index the gas tax, while adding a sales tax on the wholesale price of gasoline, will keep Maryland’s transportation funding and gas prices competitive with our neighbors across the Potomac River.

Governor O’Malley’s proposal recognizes that we will rise or fall together—as One Maryland. His statewide solution will raise revenue to fund projects from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore. Having resources available to build our transit infrastructure and maintain our roads and bridges will help our private sector grow and economy thrive.

I look forward to working with our delegation in Annapolis over the next 6 weeks to pass the Transportation Infrastructure and Investment Act of 2013.
