Washington isn’t the only state fighting to have transportation funding legislation considered. Twenty-one other states are in the same boat, with more expected throughout the year.
The staff at the Transportation Investment Advocate have already tracked 48 transportation funding bills introduced in 2015, with over 70 bills in total pending legislative action. That’s a lot of attention on transportation!
Eleven states are currently considering increasing their gas taxes, Michigan voters will decide on a ballot measure that would result in a transportation funding increase, and three states are currently considering legislation to protect their transportation funds. And there’s lots more.
Here’s a quick summary of everything that’s happening from TransportationInvestment.com.
