From the looks of it, at least

Police Chief Mike Rogers says if
that happens, the remainder of his

Yesterday Speaker Bill Howell
announced support for three bills that
tie land- use decisions to
transportation funding.

The bills would hold localities
more accountable for development
decisions by giving them more
responsibility for maintaining roads
around new developments.

One measure would require
counties to plan development in areas
close to public utilities, open spaces
and public transprtation.

A second would give localities
incentives for maintaining secondary
roads.
