The Independence Center thanks Rep. Terri Carver of Colorado Springs House

State Rep. Teri Carver speaks at the First Annual Legislative Breakfast at The Independence Center

State Rep. Teri Carver

District 20 for her vote “no” on Senate Bill 11 (SB11). SB11 would terminate the use of $15 million worth of funding from FASTER fees for transit and reallocate it towards road safety projects. Without this funding, Bustang and other statewide transit services and maintenance would have been threatened. SB11 was postponed indefinitely on February 18, 2016 on a 7-6 party-line vote. Thank you to Community Transit Coalition members who reached out to Rep. Carver and the 6 other representatives from House districts across Colorado who voted “no” on cutting necessary funding for transit.
