There being no objection, Mr. Kennedy read the following statement from Mr. McGee, the Senate Chairman of the Transportation Committee, who was unable to attend the session:

Senator McGee is unable to attend session today, due to his attendance and participation in the Council of State Governments’ Transportation Policy Academy in Portland, Oregon. I’m going to now read a prepared statement on his behalf.

I’d like to take this opportunity to express my support for the consensus transportation bill that passed in both the House and Senate, which addresses longstanding critical problems within the transportation system in Massachusetts. This legislation, which was achieved through a year-long discussion involving many stakeholders, includes a balanced approach of revenue and reforms. Through all of our hard work and passionate debate, we have found common ground.

For too long, the MBTA was facing year to year deficits, Regional Transit Authorities weren’t forward funded, and MassHighway was spending almost a quarter of a billion dollars of their capital budget on employees’ salaries. Those things had to change. With this bill, we have addressed those immediate needs, which allow us to move the agenda forward and to talk about where we go from here.

The transportation infrastructure crisis has been building for years. This legislation is a step forward in addressing this important issue. It will take more than just passing one piece of legislation to solve this problem. We need to have a focused discussion each year as we work to improve the system for residents who need and deserve affordable and reliable transportation. The future of our economy hinges on our ability to make investments and put the policies in place for a sustainable and dependable transportation system.

I want to thank all of the members for working together in moving this legislation forward. I look forward to continuing this dialogue of meaningful investments for our transportation system.
