The Senate has just agreed to amend SB 1147, the design-build bill for ITD - adding into it the sections from HB 286 about the Garwood-to-Sagle project on Highway 95 in North Idaho. Senate Transportation Chairman John McGee, R-Caldwell, told the Senate, “These amendments should look very familiar to you.” He added, “I would remind you also that nothing gets approved for funding in the GARVEE program without the approval of the ITD board.”
