$1 billion for ATRIP and RAMP infrastructure improvements

Each of Alabama's 67 counties has been given the opportunity to recruit more jobs, thanks to the largest road and bridge improvement program ever conducted in the state. When companies look for places to build, expand and hire more people, they look for places that have good infrastructure.

The Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program, ATRIP--along with its companion program, the Rural Assistance Match Program, known as RAMP, are making over $1 billion available to counties and cities, and allowing much-needed road and bridge projects to move forward. Today more than one thousand road and bridge improvement projects are underway or soon will be because of ATRIP and RAMP.

$614M for ATRIP: Transportation Rehabilitation & Improvement

Last year, cities and counties across this state were finally able to begin much-needed improvements to their roads and bridges. We launched the largest road and bridge improvement program in Alabama's history. ATRIP--the Alabama Transportation Rehabilitation and Improvement Program--allows counties to make much-needed repairs to roads and bridges. As of this week, 439 road and bridge projects have been approved. 61 of Alabama's 67 counties are seeing their roads repaired and bridges fixed. $614 million in projects have been approved.

Everyone benefits from ATRIP. When companies build new factories, they look for areas with good roads and bridges. ATRIP is giving them what they need.

Now, for those remaining six counties which have not participated in ATRIP, help is on the way. We will soon announce details that will help those counties to participate in ATRIP. Every single county in Alabama will be given the opportunity to participate.

Paperless agencies: online license & tag verification system

Let me tell you just a few things they've done to save money: By reducing energy costs in all state departments, last year, Alabama taxpayers saved over $4-million dollars. Alabama became the first state to implement an online license and tag verification system. That's expected to save hundreds of thousands of dollars and decrease the number of uninsured motor vehicles on the road. State agencies are switching to paperless methods, saving millions of dollars. Taxpayers saved over $4-million dollars when Alabama became one of the first states to run a successful E-verify System as a governmental agency.
