Working together to keep our roads safe
One of my bills, Senate Bill 155, passed the Senate unanimously last Thursday. I introduced SB 155 after a constituent contacted my office about inattentive road flaggers and asked that I do something to address the problem. The bill creates a fine for flaggers who are distracted on the job by a phone or another device. Distracted flaggers reflect poorly on our road crews and create a public safety hazard.
I’m hopeful that the House will pass the bill when we reconvene later this month and I am always thankful to be able to run legislation suggested by my neighbors in the 9th Senate District.
