House approves bond bill with Green Line extension funds

Excellent news today as the $1.6 billion Transportation Bond Bill passed in the House of Representatives. It includes $700 million for the Green Line extension. “This should be a big hurrah for the Green Line funding,” State Rep. Carl Sciortino said. “This is a big win for us.”
Two things in the bill also help to streamline the Green Line project:
– An amendment would cut down on the number of times the project has to go out to bid
– The bill asks that Federal and State engineering and environmental reviews occur simultaneously
Next the bill goes to the State Senate.
Somerville Journal: “State Green Line extension funds a “big win,” Sciortino says”
