Otter says his task force will put ‘reality behind the rhetoric’ on transportation

Gov. Butch Otter's transportation task force has released its agenda for its second meeting, which is coming up on Thursday, as part of an 18-month review and report back to the governor on transportation funding now and in the future. Though the panel's report isn't due back until Dec. 1, 2010, Otter says he "would welcome the task force’s findings and recommendations as soon as they are ready." Said the governor, "The individuals, families and businesses using our highways also are financing them. They deserve real assurance that they are getting what they pay for from our vital transportation corridors. The task force will put some reality behind the rhetoric about maintaining and improving our roads and bridges, and about what it will take to keep our people safe and economically competitive.” Click here to see the agenda for the all-day meeting and more info on the task force.
