Mullins: Senate Democrats Now Stand Alone as Only Roadblock to a Real Transportation Solution
"I'm extremely disappointed by the actions of Senate Democrats tonight.
They're the only group on Capitol Square that hasn't shown a
willingness to reach out beyond what is comfortable to solve this
serious issue. Both sides came together in the House of Delegates to
keep the discussion going.
In the Senate, Republicans left their comfort zone, going so far as to offer some of the very same solutions Democrats themselves had offered in previous years. Instead, Mark Herring, Janet Howell, and Dick Saslaw decided that nothing was better than something, leaving $310 million that would have helped drivers on the Dulles Toll Road on the table.
Tonight, Senate Democrats stand alone as the only roadblock to a real solution to Virginia's transportation problems. They should be ashamed."
