The Public Vote on Highway Deals

This week, the Colorado Department of Transportation approved a 50-year agreement with a private company to manage US36. Unfortunately, the 1,002 pages of details were posted six days before the agreement was approved, and calls for more time to better understand the deal and provide input were denied. 

The public must have time to review and the opportunity to weigh in on any deals like this. 
Please support legislation that requires at least a 30-day public comment period after the final details of deals like these are released.
