Word From The Chairman
 

Rob Killen - Kaufman & Killen, Inc.
On behalf of the North San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, our Board of Directors, staff and countless volunteers, thank you for your membership and involvement. I hope that everyone is enjoying their summer. With the end of the political season, we have an opportunity to look back on what has been accomplished, and to look forward to some exciting programs.

LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

The 84th session of the Texas Legislature has ended, and we are pleased to see that many of the issues that we fought for have passed. In the area of transportation, the North San Antonio Chamber supported: 1) the passage of new, long-term, sustainable funding sources for transportation and infrastructure; and 2) the dedication of existing revenue generated from taxes, fees or receipts related to transportation to the maintenance, improvement and expansion of roads, rail and public transportation. In Senate Joint Resolution 5, Texas House and Senate leaders came to an agreement to dedicate $2.5 billion in general sales tax revenue to the highway fund if the voters approve it at the November 3, 2015 election. Additionally, diversions from our highway funding have been stopped, which will set aside another $600 million annually to meet our statewide transportation needs.

The North Chamber endorsed a Tuition Revenue Bond bill for capital construction projects for public universities. During the session, legislature approved the issuance of $3.1 billion in bonds to pay for new higher education buildings statewide, including about $200 million for construction at UTSA, Texas A&M San Antonio and the UT Health Science Center at San Antonio.

Tuition revenue bonds and highway funding are important because they directly impact the business community in San Antonio by creating jobs and making us a more attractive market for companies seeking to relocate or expand.
