Eye On Boise

Guv makes transportation pitch

Today is the kickoff of Gov. Butch Otter’s series of meetings around the state to make his pitch for addressing the state’s $240 million-a-year shortfall in road construction and maintenance. The first session, in Caldwell today, includes meetings all day between the governor’s staff and state transportation officials and local legislators, business leaders, highway district officials, etc. From 4 to 7 p.m. at the College of Idaho, there’ll be a public meeting to which all are invited to hear about the situation and have their say. Similar sessions will follow around the state over the next month and a half. To view the governor’s videotaped pitch about the road-funding problem, click here.
