Tracy Attends Conference at the White
Nashville, Tenn. – State Sen. Jim Tracy (R-Shelbyville) was in Washington D.C. last week to attend a conference concerning state funding of transportation.
The conference was attended by elected officials from across the country and was highlighted by a visit from U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters.
“Many issues were addressed that Tennessee will be facing,” said Tracy, “including public private partnerships and other ways to fund transportation needs.”
Sen. Tracy, who is the current Chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee, also met with Sen. Lamar Alexander, Sen. Bob Corker and Congressman Marsha Blackburn to discuss transportation issues facing Tennessee.
“The Tennessee congressional delegation understands the importance of properly funding our projects,” Tracy said. “I look forward to working together with the federal, state and local officials to meet the transportation needs of Tennesseans.”
Sen. Tracy was elected to the Senate in 2004 and represents Bedford, Moore, and Rutherford Counties.
