Senate panel to again study transportation woes

JACKSON – The Senate Transportation Committee has two days of hearings scheduled for Thursday and Friday for members to again hear about the poor condition of the state’s transportation system.

The final segment of the hearings, called by Senate Transportation Chairman Willie Simmons, D-Cleveland, will be a discussion of possible solutions.

Thus far, finding a solution to deal with the state’s infrastructure needs has been difficult to ascertain. State officials have been grappling with the issue for about five years.
