Little new fed transportation funding likely to arrive from Congress

The next transportation funding bill to pass Congress likely won't bring much of a bump to Idaho in funding, transportation consultant Tom Warne told Gov. Butch Otter's task force on transportation funding this morning. The bill likely won't be for as many years as past transportation bills, possibly only covering two years, and it will include more regulation and new requirements on ITD, he said. "I don't see a significant increase in federal funding, honestly. There might be a little tweak." He added, "I think you probably can't rely on them to solve your problems."
