House won’t consider combo bill

“This is kind of tough for me,” House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, told the House just now. When SB 1147, the bill to allow design-build contracts at ITD, arrived at the House, it’d been amended in the Senate. “To kind of clarify one of the errors that they made, they decided to kind of tack two bills together,” Moyle told the House. “And they don’t fit together, there’s two subjects there. … It’s upsetting to me. I offer my apologies to the gentleman from District 5, but we can’t proceed with the bill the way it’s written, they’re separate subjects. It’s foul play.” That means Rep. Frank Henderson’s proposal to eliminate a two-mile gap of two-lane road at the south end of the Garwood-to-Sagle highway project also dies; that’s what the Senate amended into the bill.
