The original working group on the Regional Transportation Authority
worked until after 7:30 this evening. The negotiators are close to
an agreement. The Senate declined to review House Bills 5467 and
5468 on Tuesday and postponed discussion in the the Senate Transportation
and Tourism until 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, First Floor Farnham Senate office
building. If an agreement is reached overnight, the bill will be
taken up immediately. If Labor and the others need more time,
the committee will be recessed until later in the day. Those
closest to this bill, which is crucial to moving forward with better
transit on Southeast Michigan, expect the DARTA legislation to be
voted out of committee tomorrow. Those of us who have worked on
this next step are cautiously optimistic.
We are encouraging everyone who can make it to Lansing, to come and show
support for the DARTA. Because of the uncertainty, it may take
until the afternoon for the final vote.
Thanks to all who have brought us this far.
