The State Senate passed a bill Thursday that forces a revision to a rule some say has blocked local job creation. The bill, sponsored by Senator Chris Telfer of Bend, requires a review and revision of the Transportation Planning Rule and places a priority on economic development.  All Senators voted in favor of it and it now moves to the House. “I'm happy; we watered it down a little from the original TPR Moratorium and it's good stuff.  It's great; it's a good bite out of the apple." Telfer says in the past, the Transportation Planning Rule has created a complex web of demands and requirements that must be met before land can be made available for new business.  She calls the rule heavy handed with unnecessary hurdles to local job creation.
