The governor’s transportation funding task force has been kicking around some questions about how it should fashion its recommendations, but hasn’t yet begun debating the specifics - that’ll happen this afternoon. Lt. Gov. Brad Little, the task force chairman, is passing out a draft resolution with some blanks in it for task force members to ponder over their lunch break. Because the meeting is running ahead of schedule, the task force will reconvene at 12:45 after its lunch break to start debating things like gas tax hikes, taxes on car rentals, increases in car registration fees and the like.
