Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey (R-Blountville) on Wednesday appointed Senator Janice Bowling (R-Tullahoma) to the Transportation Coordination Committee. The special joint committee is charged with creating a strategic transportation coordination plan for Tennessee.
 
“In order for our economy to grow, it is crucial that transportation barriers be removed so that people and goods can travel freely and easily,” said Lt. Governor Ramsey. “Senator Bowling is a dedicated public servant who distinguished herself on many issues in her first year in the Senate.
I look forward to seeing her contributions to this committee.”
 
“I’m grateful to be appointed to this important committee,” said Senator Bowling. “I look forward to helping form a transportation plan for Tennessee that encourages commerce and economic growth in the state.”

The group makes recommendations about the effectiveness of existing services; improvements in the effective use of existing funding; reduction of barriers to the effective funding of transportation services; identification of new sources of transportation funding; and improvement of universal mobility for Tennessee citizens and visitors.
