Chamber Business News
Arizona elected officials and business leaders are voicing support this week for new legislation to advance the development of Interstate 11, a proposed highway route between northwestern Nevada and Arizona’s southern border.
Interstate 11 Coalition executive director Scott Higginson, coalition chairman John Ragan, president David Martin and board member Glenn Hamer, president and CEO of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, wrote a letter to members of the Arizona congressional delegation — Sens. Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema and Reps. Greg Stanton and Paul Gosar — urging them to consider the bill to advance the I-11 project.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors of The Interstate 11 Coalition we offer our thanks and express our full support for the legislation you have drafted to advance the development of Interstate 11 and bring the resources of the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) into the process at such a critical time,” the letter began.
