Senate Committee to Require SHA to Develop Road Salt Guidance Document

What started as legislation to require the State Highway Administration (SHA) and every local jurisdiction responsible for highway maintenance to establish and implement a road salt management program, has been amended to require SHA to develop a road salt management best practices guidance document for use by State and local government.

As previously reported, MACo opposed SB 775 due to the administrative and fiscal effect the development of these plans would have on local governments.   In response to these concerns, the Education Health and Environmental Affairs Committee  amended the bill to remove the mandate that would be placed on local governments and require the SHA to develop a guidance document.
