Republican Texas Senator Robert Nichols released a statement on the failure to address the SJR 2 bill.
"I am disappointed that the Senate failed to address a number of important issues last night. As chairman of Senate Transportation, I find it particularly unfortunate that SJR 2 did not pass," said Nichols. "Congestion in our state highways is increasing daily and the system is in need of maintenance. This measure would have been a step on the right direction toward finding a long-term transportation funding solution, and had a strong, bipartisan support in both chambers of the legislature."
Senator Nichols says that he looks forward to continuing to work on the matter.
