This bill requires counties to hold a public hearing if transferring an asset for use in a high speed transportation system as well as public notification by the transportation entity to all homeowners and businesses within 500 feet of the transferred asset.
This bill requires municipal agreements if counties choose to sell assets to high-speed transportation systems if such assets fall within municipal lines.
