Korman: Rural Broadband, Peer Reviews For Transportation Engineers

This week was a busy week for me in committee hearings. I presented House Bill 1280, relating to a design professional’s peer review process. This legislation is prepared similar to the medical peer review to allow more professionals to look at the process in detail and advancing the safety of bridges, buildings, etc. without creating more liability lawsuits.

In the House Utilities Committee we heard a bill that would allow for standardizing agreements for Broadband to be attached to electric cooperatives poles. It also has a protection for damages to property owners. Rural Missouri desperately needs Broadband Internet. I would like to support this bill if the property owner’s rights can be strengthened.

In Transportation Appropriations we further discussed I-70 and Toll Roads. I feel the I-70 issue is a huge concern to the citizens of Warren and Montgomery Counties. Your voice in the process matters.

Please take the time to vote in the primary on Tuesday, February 7. This may help the caucus participants know who Missourians want or don’t want to support for President.

I had many visitors since last week’s report including elected officials, catholic school children, school counselors and some corn growers.

I am happy to be here serving the constituents of Montgomery and Warren counties. Please feel free to stop by or contact your 99th District office at:
