House Approves $200 million for Local Infrastructure

 

House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Representative RoseLee Vincent joined their colleagues in the House of Representatives to pass legislation that authorizes $200 million for Chapter 90 funding to help municipalities complete road, bridge and infrastructure improvement projects.

It is unknown yet what the city of Revere will be receiving.

The bill also appropriates $70 million to replace the Registry of Motor Vehicle’s information technology infrastructure.

“Chapter 90 funds are essential to providing stability and spurring economic growth in Massachusetts,” DeLeo (D-Winthrop) said. “That growth starts on the local level. I am pleased we were able to take action on this bill before April to support safety and efficiency in our municipalities.”

“I want to thank Speaker DeLeo and my colleagues for approving critical Chapter 90 funding for our cities and towns,” said Representative Vincent (D-Revere).  “I’m particularly pleased at the funding Revere will receive for its roads, and I’m sure the City will direct these funds in needed areas.”

This legislation complements a 2016 transportation law focused on highways, small bridges and a municipal grant program. That bill authorized $750 million for both federal-aid interstate and non-interstate highway projects, and $50 million for a new program to repair small bridges.
