Governor's Transportation Summit - Transportation Interim Committee

  1. 1. TRANSPORTATION INTERIM COMMITTEE STUDY ON THE CURRENT STATUS OF UTAH’S TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM AND FUTURE NEEDS REP. JOHNNY ANDERSON CHAIR HOUSE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE
  2. 2. DIRECTIONS FROM LEADERSHIP • Study issues related to transportation: • • • • Planning Operations Maintenance Funding
  3. 3. CHALLENGES = 2 YEAR PROCESS • Task Force was not funded so time was limited to interim committee. • House side had a brand new chair and ½ of its members were either new to the legislature or new to the committee. • Significant funding shortfall split between state, locals, and transit. • Political challenges of tackling the whole problem at once.
  4. 4. STRENGTHS • Utah has top notch, even world class people in transportation. • Unified Transportation Plan. • NOBODY ELSE HAS THIS!!! • House Chair and committee members are quick learners .
  5. 5. PLANNING AND OPERATIONS • We looked at the role of: • • • • • • Legislature Transportation Commission Metropolitan Planning Agencies UDOT Transit Districts Local Government
  6. 6. MAINTENANCE • State system has two kinds of roads: • Roads we maintain proactively. • Roads we do not. • Local roads vary substantially in quality and use. • Maintenance costs are a huge concern. Resources are needed. • Bridges
  7. 7. FUNDING • 11.3 Billion • $452 M per year over 25 years. • Split somewhat evenly between state, locals, transit. • Cannot all be done at once. • Impact to economy. • Transit taxes require voter approval. • Local needs gaining recognition as most pressing may see movement this session. • We will continue studying options in 2014.
