Star Tribune: MnDOT may cut back highway, bridge plans (MN)
From Star Tribune:
The Minnesota Department of Transportation may be awash in stimulus money, but the agency is now looking to cut $150 million from its construction program over the next two fiscal years. That's because the same recession that brought the half-billion-dollar federal windfall has all but killed Minnesotans' interest in buying cars, meaning a steep dropoff in sales tax and license tab fee revenues that help pay for road construction. MnDOT's metro district is set to take a $67 million hit.
Over 90% of Americans believe that investing in infrastructure should be a priority.
