Easily one of the most divisive and hotly debated bills
passed by the state legislature last session was SB 108, aka FASTER
(Funding Advancements for Surface Transportation and Economic Recovery).
It was a hike in vehicle registration fees meant to raise $250 million a year to fix the 125 bridges around the state deemed structurally deficient, and it has become a rallying cry for Republicans
around the state bent on recapturing seats in both the House and Senate next fall.
