HB16-1031 - Modify Transportation Commission Membership

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning A Requirement That The Transportation Legislation Review Committee Study The Transportation Commission Districts Of The State To Determine Whether They Should Be Modified.

Transportation Legislation Review Committee. Transportation commission members are appointed from 11 statutorily defined transportation commission districts (districts), and the general assembly has not modified the number or boundaries of the districts since 1991. The bill requires the transportation legislation review committee (TLRC) to study the districts during the 2016 legislative interim to determine whether the number and boundaries of the districts should be modified and, if so, what specific modifications should be made.

Legislative council staff, with the cooperation of the department of transportation, must assist the TLRC in conducting the study by preparing and presenting to the TLRC no later than August 1, 2016, a research study that documents changes since the last time the general assembly modified the number and boundaries of the districts, to include population, number of lane miles, and annual vehicle miles traveled for each of the districts and taking into account existing county and municipal boundaries, regional transportation areas and districts, and transportation planning regions. The committee must hold public hearings in the major geographical regions of the state regarding potential modifications to the number and boundaries of the districts and may recommend legislation to modify the number and boundaries of the districts based on the results of the research study and public comments received about the study.
