STATE AND LOCAL TRANSPORTATION FUNDING CAMPAIGNS
It’s certainly not a new trend in local communities and at the state level, but with the Highway Trust Fund still headed for insolvency, states, metro areas, cities and counties are increasingly coming up with their own plans for raising additional transportation revenue — while hoping the federal government finds a way to continue being a strong partner in their efforts. Experience has shown that voters, when given the chance, are typically eager to support new revenue for local transportation priorities.
