More money for road builders!
That is the loud cry from the legislative "Committee on Transportation Needs and Financing," which wants to raise transportation taxes by $698.2 million annually. Of that, $544.6 million, or 78%, would go to highway construction.
Just when you thought the Legislature couldn't get any sleazier, its members sell themselves again to special interests. This time (again) it's the road builders. JS has the story this morning.
