Regional highway authority bill clears Senate committee.

The Senate Transportation, Technology and Legislative Affairs Committee on Wednesday recommended the revised Regional Mobility Authority bill, House Bill 1698 by Rep. Robbie Wills, D-Conway.

The bill would allow regions of the state to set up highway authorities lead by county judges and mayors within the region, but would require voter approval for new toll roads. The bill would not allow tolls on existing highways or highways already under construction.
