The Missouri Senate Transportation Committee passed a bill to provide state funding for arterial roads in St. Louis. But, the man who holds the bill's fate in his hands says the vote isn't an assurance of anything.

Renny MacKay has more from Jefferson City.

The Senate Committee's passage of the bill does not necessarily mean it will be sent to the Senate floor for debate and a vote.

The Chair of the committee is Danny Staples, he will decide if the bill is worthwhile.

Even if Staples does send the bill to the Senate it will be behind a long list of other bills waiting to be heard. And this year is the slowest moving year in recent memory.

That means St. Louis may have to continue paying the 1.6 million dollars of maintance on its arterial roads.

St. Louis roads got some good news from the Missouri Senate, but the good news may have come too late.

St. Louis is the only city in Missouri that pays for the maintance of its arterial roads. Tuesday, a Senate committee passed a bill to give that duty to the state.

Danny Staples is chair of the committee.

Staples says he could send the bill to the Senate as soon as Thursday. But this may have all come to late for St. Louis residents. The bill would be behind a long list waiting to be heard and there is only a week to go in the session.
