Congressman Tanner Magee On Legislative Session Success


State Representative Tanner Magee was a rock star during the legislative session!  He spoke with Brian about all the bills that he helped pass.

What is the Louisiana infrastructure bill?

Magee discussed the infrastructure bill that moves Deepwater Horizon funds to the transportation trust fund that would take care of a number of projects across the state.  Magee explains what projects will be improved because of the funding and why he decided to use the Deepwater Horizon funds on infrastructure.

What is the new framework for ride sharing services in Louisiana?

In regards to ride sharing services, representative Magee talks about the new framework put in place by DOTD.  He explains how certain parishes didn’t have ride sharing services because Uber and Lyft didn’t want every parish to have its own set of regulations.  This bill provides a statewide framework for ride sharing services and gives more uniformity to the regulations.
