Commerce – Congressman Ralph Hall and State Representative Dan Flynn recently met with local political leaders at the Northeast Texas Mobility Council meeting. Also attending the meeting was A&M-Commerce President Dr. Keith McFarland, and former president Bub McDowell to discuss recent legislation with impact in this area. A federal highway bill was recently passed, and with efforts by Hall, Interstate 30 from Dallas to Memphis was designated as high priority. The designation could mean major funding for projects along the roadway.
