MML’s legislative priority bill to remove the FY 2024 sunset provision and reinstate full funding of Highway User Revenues was amended and passed by the House last week. The amendments include funding increases for municipalities, though the amount is slightly reduced, and extends the sunset to FY 2028. This is the first time the HUR bill has passed the House since 2018.
The Senate B&T Committee may still vote on SB 726, the House crossfile, this week. If so, the bills will be reconciled in Conference Committee. Follow along with HB 1187’s progress here, and SB 726’s progress here.
