With the Legislature back in session for its last month of business before they adjourn for the year, many issues remain open. One significant remaining issue is whether they will be able to pass a meaningful package of revenue and reforms to address the state’s crumbling highways, streets, roads, and bridges. Unfortunately, there are no clear answers yet.
“We have been telling people that the longer they wait to provide the funds to fix our roads, the more it’s going to cost in the long run,” said CSAC Executive Director Matt Cate. “We have held rallies, written Op-Eds and advocated in every way possible to make sure the Legislature understands the ramifications of inaction. We have a little less than a month now to see if they’ve been listening.”
