The following is a statement from the Coalition Supporting the New International Trade Crossing (NITC) regarding the Senate Economic Development Committee’s vote today to note report legislation to the full Senate allowing the NITC to move forward.
“We are deeply disappointed in the Senate committee’s failure to move the New International Trade Crossing legislation to the full Senate for a vote. A majority of Senators on the committee support the building of the NITC, they just have to craft a piece of legislation that everyone can agree to. We urge the Governor and the legislature to continue to work to find a compromise that a majority of Senators can support. We encourage the legislature to put partisan politics aside and put the economic interest of our state and our workers first.”
