Rep. Sullivan’s first bill passes out of the House



STATEHOUSE – House Bill (HB) 1286 authored by State Representative Holli Sullivan (R-Evansville) passed out of the House today with a unanimous vote and will now go to the Senate further discussion.

HB 1286 requires the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), the Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV), the Indiana Finance Authority and Purdue University to provide annual reports to the Joint Study Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Assessment and Solutions.

“This method has been used successfully by the Indiana Utility and Regulatory Commission for a long time as a way to collect information,” said Rep. Sullivan. “Not only will this give legislators timely, relevant data to help them work successfully during the interim, it will also give more detailed insight into how we can continue improving Indiana’s transportation systems. I look forward to seeing this legislation move through the Senate.”

  1. Passing a bill, for passing a bill’s sake is not something to be applauded. It’s what is wrong with this God forsaken system of pols, cronies and bureaucrats.

  2. Passing a bill for passing a bill’s sake? This is something Indiana NEEDS.

    Our State Motto is ‘Crossroads of America’, yet our Highways, roads, and bridges are in desperate need of repair and upkeep.

    The only thing that would have made me applaud her more is if she had introduced a bill that put extra emphasis on High-speed rail.

    • Thank you for supporting high speed rail Jeremy. You are the kind of person we need representing us in Indianapolis. I hope voters in this region pay attention closely to your race and reward you for your vision.
